In the wake of Gambia’s democratic transition, GPU, the Ministry of Information and other media stakeholders have developed a joint, strategic and comprehensive Media Reform Framework – in which education and training of journalists and communicators are paramount. This puts GAMES’ new partner, the Media Academy for Journalism and Communication (MAJaC, formerly the GPU J-School) in a catalytic role, being the only player that offers formal vocational education and training courses in the field, which will have with a measurable impact on media and civil society organizations. This project aims to support MAJaC to cease these opportunities in three steps: 1. by establishing and consolidating itself with its own independent board, management and administration 2. by developing its own operational capacities for immediate, concrete responses 3. by developing a model for long-time cooperation with relevant donors - in shape of a multi-annual project proposal.
