RESPECT's e-Zine takes refugee issues global
RESPECT International works to raise awareness of refugee issues in part by connecting war-affected youth to non-refugee youth around the world through the pen-pal Letter Exchange Program.
RESPECT's e-Zine is a monthly periodical that documents the work of RESPECT and that of its partner organizations in war-affected communities and around the world. The e-Zine allows RESPECT to document the work of teachers participating in the letter exchange program and gives an international platform to our Affiliates in war-affected communities.
The articles are translated into French, Italian and Spanish from English and then archived on our website after they are published, generating a growing online database which is available for people to freely access. The translation of RESPECT e-Zine into other languages makes the content more widely accessible to the global community.
Story ideas for the e-Zine are submitted to or identified by Marc Schaeffer, RESPECT's President, and then forwarded onto the coordinator of e-Zine writers, Mohammed Riazuddin. Riaz assigns each story idea to a writer, makes introductions to interviewees as appropriate and follows up to make sure the stories are completed in a timely fashion.
Completed stories are submitted to our editorial team. Angela Carter, our Content Editor, edits each English article for grammar, language and so forth and sends the articles back to the writer for further details as required. e-Zine
