More than four million people have fled war-torn Syria since the conflict erupted four and a half years ago, and the refugees’ journeys across Europe have been widely covered in the news.

 

Foreign journalists are telling the stories of people who have left to seek a better life, but with a lack of journalism training in Syria, there are few left to document the lives of those who have stayed.

 

It is for that reason that journalist Zaina Erhaim returned to her native Syria in 2013, to train citizen reporters in print and TV journalism in her role as a project coordinator and trainer with the Institute for War and Peace Reporting (IWPR).
