The aim of the training is to produce superior and competent human resources in the fields of journalism and multimedia.

Of course you have to go through a process that is not easy. It will take a long time. Two days is enough to give the basics. What is the basis for Ahmadiyah friends to make video production content that will be distributed to the public,” said Gunawan.

“It is undeniable that in many sectors, the views of society or the general public regarding women are still dominated (patriarchy). For example, suppose job A is better done by men, job B is better done by men, like that. With technology, information disclosure, we can see that women have more opportunities to learn to find information, especially in the media,” said Venty.

Venty sees the advancement of technology and information disclosure as a very good opportunity for women. Even in the midst of living their daily lives, women can also learn how to be a writer, content creator, and so on. “So that they can also contribute to conveying opinions that represent both themselves and their communities or organizations,” he continued.

“So for those who have the talent to write, of course develop their journalistic writing. Those who have awareness of the potential or interest in the video field, of course will be concerned in holding cameraman or video editing tools, or more on audio. The purpose of this training is to develop awareness publications, especially among Ahmadis, so that all regions have an awareness of how to publish all the dynamics of activities in the area,” he concluded.
