DIGGING STORIES THAT MATTER. The seminar-workshops in Surigao City (first photo) for Mindanao leg and Baguio City (second photo) for Luzon-NCR leg on January 2018 complete the media training series on covering the extractive industries organized by the Philippine Press Institute (PPI) in partnership with the Philippine Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (PH-EITI) Secretariat. Fifty-nine journalists from PPI-member publications and other media outfits and platforms attended all three workshops that kicked off in Cebu City in December 2017 for the Visayas leg.
The second phase of the partnership will be submission and approval of story proposals with corresponding grants amounting up to P20,000.00. (
