  2. 2. Imagine a place where ethical journalism and social entrepreneurship meet to produce news that is bold, authentic and accurate. As a young foreign correspondent in Nepal, Cristi Hegranes imagined such a place. From this vision The Press Institute emerged.
  3. 3. Now solutions-based reporting is being used as a tool for global transformation by empowering individuals, building stronger communities and raising global awareness.
  4. 4. How We Empower PI Certified Reporter Training The Press Institute (PI) trains and employs women in developing countries to be PI Certified Reporters for our local independent publications, regional news desks and global newswire. Journalism Training Specialty Reporting Seminars teach advanced news-gathering and story-telling skills, giving reporters the confidence to deepen their coverage of challenging issues like HIV/AIDS and Climate Change. Partner programs PI partners with global and local organizations to broaden the reach and impact of its work. Current programs focus on youth journalism, citizen journalism web 2.0, adult literacy, computer skills and wellness.
  5. 5. Why We Do It Why We Empower When PI hired Tara Bhattarai she was writing under a male pseudonym in Nepal. Women were not paid to be reporters nor were their opinions respected. One year after being trained and employed by the Press Institute, Tara recounted the story of a young girl sold to a brothel in India, her abuse and eventual escape. Published under her own name, the story received more than 1,000,000 hits online and remains one of PI’s best-known pieces of journalism. Today, Tara is an internationally respected reporter with no need for a pen name.
