The Westminster Foundation is set to build the capacity of members of the Parliamentary Press Corps.

This was announced by the Country Director of the civil society organisation, Dr David Appiah, at a media encounter organised by Parliament’s Public Affairs Directorate on Thursday, 31 January 2019.

The Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD), a UK public body is dedicated to supporting democracy around the world with its engagement level in over 30 developing countries, to make their governments fairer, more effective and accountable.

WFD’s initiatives include: helping protect women from violence in the Middle East, making politics more inclusive in Africa, consolidating democratic institutions in Asia, and building trust in democracy across the Western Balkans.

With members of the Press Corps playing a pivotal role in trumpeting parliamentary proceedings to the ordinary citizen, the Westminster Foundation is poised to train the corps on emerging trends in parliamentary practice, both locally and internationally.

Dr Appiah expressed optimism that the training will greatly improve the reportage of journalists.

Beneficiaries of the training will travel to parliaments in Africa and Europe, especially the UK.
