Afghanistan - Herat, Journalistan

At Herat University, Afghanistan's second largest after Kabul's, the brand-new Faculty of Journalism was created in April, 2011, thanks to the effort of the Italian cooperation. Here are being born the professionals who soon will tell stories of the new Afghanistan to their fellow nationals. Actually, many of them, while they’re still studying the fundamentals of the job, are already doing that from the microphones of the new, self-financed private radio stations, or through the freshly-born TV channels. And, surprisingly, one third of this X-generation of journalists are women.
