Global Press Institute became the latest content partner for Women’s eNews, and the latter ran its first article from the former Jan. 30, Trans People in Nepal Live Without Citizenship, by Kalpana Bhusal.
GPI was founded by Cristi Hegranes, Women’s eNews’ 2008 recipient of the Ida B. Wells Award for Bravery in Journalism, and it operates news desks in 23 countries using a training-to-employment model, in which women in developing nations receive journalism training and long-term employment opportunities.
Women’s eNews editor-in-chief Rita Henley Jensen said:
Women’s eNews is delighted that Cristi Hegranes, the founder of a young news organization we honored in 2008, has now developed her organization to the point that it will be our newest partner. The Global Press Institute’s growing staff of highly trained female journalists will increase our capacity to cover women’s stories and change women’s lives.
Women’s eNews has long been a supporter of the Global Press Institute, so I am very pleased that we are now able to share content that will help both organizations reach the goal of increasing access to information on important issues around the globe.
