What We Do. Everyday.
FundraisingKloop manages funds from philanthropic gifts and grants to expand our reach and change more lives. These monies are necessary to our success and we thank you for the generosity!
Cross-Cultural EngagementWith our international presence and contacts around the world, we are able to help students engage with foreign pen pals and successfully participate in study abroad opportunities.
Experience in the FieldKloop has been training journalists and inspiring youth since 2008. With a professional staff with more than 100 combined years of experience, we are leaders in our field.
Empowering WomenKloop works with young women to inspire a future with broader choices and the confidence to make those choices. Our focus on gender-balance is at the middle of everything we do.
Pro DemocracyCentral Asia’s developing democracies are in need of professional journalists to build an informed electorate. Kloop supports this through world-class journalism education.
Supporting DialogueWe believe that reporting the news is more than a one-way dialogue. Kloop promotes community discussions and encourages the public to engage with our student journalists.
Creative WritingTelling a compelling story requires sharp writing skills. Student’s works are put in the spotlight through the articles they publish, in addition to creative pieces ranging from poetry to screenplays.
Radio JournalismAll of Kloop’s daily headlines are translated into Russian, Kyrgyz and Uzbek radio broadcasts which are syndicated to more than 6 million people everyday via community radio stations.
Leveraging MobileBy deploying mobile devices and trainings to journalists in rural areas in the region, Kloop gives wider voice and greater access to information for the most remote populations.
Photo JournalismAs a multi-disciplinary journalism school, we find students engage creatively with imagery. That’s why photojournalism is at the center of our core curriculum.
Advanced IT CoursesTechnology and the internet are the future and Kloop is training the next generation of programmers, web developers and IT specialists while sharpening critical thinking skills.
Video ProductionAs internet bandwidth becomes more accessible in Central Asia, Kloop is leading the charge to develop streaming video services and putting more video content online.
