Abaad Research and Study Center (Abaad) in collaboration with International Research and Exchange (IREX) launched last Monday its second training course on social media in Hodaida. The four-day course targeted 30 activist youth.
Coordinator of the course Nabil Al-Sidawi said that that the course was held in Aden according to recommendations presented by the Yemeni Journalist Syndicate (YJS) which was briefed on findings of the first course held in Sana’a last March.
Al-Sidawi highly appreciated efforts exerted by IREX and its coordinator in Yemen Hakim al-Masmari, pointing out that such courses help activists to be more competent.
Meanwhile, the trainer Aref Abu Hatim said that the course focused on neutrality of media outlets and how to be more professional.
Media officer of Abaad Abdul-Baset al-Shaja’a said that this course aimed to improve skills of youth activists and provide media outlets with competent journalists and activists.
