With funding from Sida, a 3-year series of in-house training, regional Training of Trainers for the Newsroom and business courses was designed using data from an in-depth consultation on training needs, launched at an international conference in January 2013.

From 2013 to 2016 Fojo was working on this project with 14 independent exiled media outlets that broadcast and publish uncensored news to audiences in Azerbaijan, Belarus, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Iran, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Tibet, Uzbekistan, Zambia, Zimbabwe and 3 media outlets that were in transition from exile to mainstream in Myanmar.
