We were delighted to attend the National Press Awards on 22 March at The Hilton Hotel Park Lane, London.
Wiggin’s Partner Caroline Kean presented the award to Amie Ferris-Rotman, who was the winner of the Georgina Henry Award for Innovation, and which Wiggin was proud to sponsor.
Amie is the founder of Sahar Speaks, which provides training, mentoring and publishing opportunities for Afghan female reporters.
Amie said: “The award means the world to me, and to the female journalists who’ve already gone through training in Kabul. It is a huge and well-deserved confidence boost for the Sahar Speaks participants. I can’t wait to start building the online community to expand this work” You can find out more about Sahar Speaks here.
