Creating Education

Education is a human right, creates economical independence and is the best investment towards a secure future. In countries where a two-tier society exists in regard to education, the requirement of further and advanced education is especially important. However, often financial means are insufficient to enable further education. For exactly this reason, the German-European Institute of Journalism has applied itself to developing professional schools in which practice-orientated tools for the profession of a journalist are conveyed.
