Daniel Pearl Foundation

About

The Daniel Pearl Foundation was formed in memory of the Wall Street Journal’s South Asia Bureau Chief, journalist/musician Daniel Pearl, who was murdered in 2002 in Karachi, Pakistan. The Foundation works internationally to promote cross-cultural dialogue and understanding, to counter cultural and religious intolerance, to cultivate responsible and balanced journalism, and to inspire unity and friendship through music. In 2003, the Foundation teamed with Press Partners to offer special fellowships to journalists from South Asia and the Middle East to work in U.S. newsrooms to experience the dynamics of a free press environment first hand. Since 2003, 20 mid-level journalists from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, Tunisia, Turkey and Yemen have spent five to six months at publications including: The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, The Huffington Post, Houston Chronicle, ProPublica, The Berkshire Eagle and North Adams Transcript.
