About AJEEP Radio
In 2010 San Jose State University received a $1.2 million federal grant to train Afghan professors to teach modern journalism. The effort will link San Jose State with three universities in Afghanistan.
The grant also included funding for the establishment of internet-based radio and TV broadcast channels.
In 2011 San Jose State University received a second grant of more than $1 million to modernize journalism education at Balkh University in Afghanistan.
SJSU Associate Professor of Journalism Diane Guerrazzi is working with contracts manager Susan Mir, Journalism Professor Halima Kazem and English for special purposes instructor Kelly Robart to carry out these grants. They have developed curriculum modules, trained University faculty, and among other things created the AJEEP TV/radio station that you can access from this website. The radio/TV station and website were developed in collaboration with former Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) journalist Danielle Suchet and SJSU intern Kate Treen.
