WAJA Boss Donates Computer to Journalism School


The President of the West African Journalists Association-(WAJA), Mr. Peter Quaqua, has presented a new laptop computer to the ‘Peter Quaqua School of Journalism’-PQSJ as his initial contribution to the institution.
The laptop, according to MediaAid Foundation’s Program Assistant Abersau G. Baker, will enhance the ongoing journalism training, particularly the Adobe Audition and Cool Edit session.
A MediaAid release quoted Ms. Baker as saying that the WAJA president’s donation is in fulfillment of a pledge he made to trainees of the ‘Peter Quaqua School of Journalism’-PQSJ, during his first visit to the training session on August 10.
The ‘Peter Quaqua School of Journalism’ is a private and media training program of MediaAid Foundation named in honor of Mr. Peter Quaqua, past president of the Press Union of Liberia (PUL).
MediaAid Foundation’s release also announced that the journalism school will formally be launched November later this year at an elaborate ceremony, where Mr. Quaqua will get an official recognition for his struggle as an advocate for free press and social justice in Africa.
Meanwhile, about forty-five trainees of the ‘Peter Quaqua School of Journalism’ were scheduled for a field trip Friday, August 21.
The field trip, according to MediaAid Foundation, would allow the student journalists write and tell the stories of orphans at the ‘Child Survival Children Welfare Center at Bernard Farm Community and Margibi County local administration in Kakata City.
The field trip is a requirement by the ‘Peter Quaqua School of Journalism to further expose and test the student journalists’ news gathering skills.
