We start from the idea that independent, courageous media are part of a healthy, confident, successful society. Untainted information is essential for democracy and development. The job of the good journalist is to find out what's going on, to understand it and then to let people know about it, as interestingly and accurately as possible. We work at every stage of this process.

Jemstone runs MASTERCLASSES IN MEDIA SKILLS: TV set design; studio directing; VT-picture editing; news presenting; political cartooning; Arabic-language writing; radio production; forward planning; photo-journalism; web-publishing.
