Projects Abroad Announce their New ‘Madurai Messenger’ Website

Saturday 29th January 2011

Journalism volunteers in India now have full access to a brand new website

Gap year volunteering, as a journalist in India, is the perfect way to enhance your education, gain valuable experience, while enjoying a rewarding and challenging position. Projects Abroad offer a package for journalism volunteering in India, and have recently announced a great new website for their volunteers to use for photo journalism, video reporting and writing in other languages. The Madurai Messenger website at www.maduraimessenger.org gives a real multimedia resource opportunity to buddy writers.

A new dramatic design has updated the bold look of the website, a new ‘Articles in Other Languages’ section lets volunteers write in their mother tongue and the ‘Collaborative Article’ section offers a chance to work with Indian university students, or children in schools to write articles together.

Projects Abroad offer voluntary journalism internships, or work experience for journalists in Madurai, India, also known as the ‘Temple City’. It is an ancient city full of history, but also brimming with new stories to be told.

If you are planning a gap year or career break, and contemplating a career in journalism or the media, a Projects Abroad placement can set you on the right track. Overseas voluntary work such as this is a great way of enhancing your CV and making you stand out from the crowd, whether you are currently studying journalism or looking to secure a place on a journalism course.

If you are already a practicing journalist, then volunteering abroad will broaden your horizons and give you experience of a new way of working, against the backdrop of new and exciting country. You will learn many new things and may be able to teach your new colleagues something as well.
