This is the kind of email we love to get. Emani attended our Journalist to Journalist program at the International AIDS Conference last summer in Vienna, Austria. As he explains below, he attributes what he learned at the J2J program to contributing to his successful effort to find funding for a film about children living with HIV. We’re very proud of Emani Krishna Rao and his accomplishments, as we are proud of all the journalists we work with, whether through our international programs or our programs in the U.S.

I am happy to inform you that BaKaForum (part of Swiss TV) has selected my proposal “Let’s play please" as the best proposal from developing country on Children Living with HIV. The award was presented to me at Basel, Switzerland on 30th January 2011. They are going to fund my film which will deal with stigma and discrimination attached to children living with HIV. I must thank National Press Foundation for giving me wider exposure during Vienna conference and training. With inputs and skills acquired at Vienna, I could put the facts in proper perspective during my presentation to the International Jury.
Thanks once again to the National Press Foundation team.
