Some interesting work being done in Afghanistan by a Canadian media organization:

A Canadian organization is reaching out to women in Afghanistan, teaching them to work as journalists and opening radio stations, hoping to change the view of women in a society that has traditionally held them in low esteem.

The Institute for Media, Policy and Civil Society, or IMPACS, financed by Canada’s International Development Agency, has opened two radio stations in the war-ravaged country and is working on a third.
