SHARJAH: The Sharjah Press Club (SPC), affiliated to the Sharjah Government Media Bureau (SGMB), held an intensive training course on the “Fundamentals of Journalistic Writing” for orphans from the Sharjah Social Empowerment Foundation as part of the SGMB’s initiatives marking the Year of Giving and its vision to build media cadres and empower orphans.

Held at the SPC’s headquarters by Nabil Atta, Assistant Managing Editor at Al Khaleej newspaper, the training programme introduced participants to the various forms of journalistic writing, key differences between them and basics of editing.

Earlier, students from the Sharjah Social Empowerment Foundation participated in a one-month summer training programme that was organised by the SPC to promote participants’ media education and introduce them to the basics of journalism.

Huda Al Dah, Manager of SPC, said the club is keen to cooperate with the Sharjah Social Empowerment Foundation, one of the leading institutions in social work and supports orphans across various spheres through its distinct programmes.

Al Dah added that the training programme complements the Club’s efforts towards the achievement of the Year of Giving goals and constructive cooperation with humanitarian and social work institutions.

She clarified that throughout the year, the SPC holds a variety of training programmes and workshops that serve its objectives of development and rehabilitation.

Sheikha Al Tunaiji, head of Psychological Service at the Sharjah Social Empowerment Foundation, said the Foundation is keen to annually participate in summer empowerment programmes that align with its vision of supporting Sharjah’s human development plans and empowering orphans in all walks of life.

Al Tunaiji thanked the SPC for its efforts to ensure the success of its training programmes. She praised the Club for its cooperation and keenness to provide media and journalism training opportunities for orphan students.
