Need: I am Looking for content partners for my website titled, Kashmir Narrative(www.kashmirnarrative.org)

Hello there,
My name is Aliya Bashir and I am from Indian Administered Kashmir. I am working as a Journalist and freelancing with regional as well as various media outlets outside the state.
During our training workshop back in 2012 at World Pulse, I learned so much not especially in the sense not only to make a difference in one's personal life but to the overall community I belong to. We were always taught to power of the message and thus we were advised to provide a voice to those who don't have a voice .
So, in this regard, I have started a small venture this year in the month of April, namely Kashmir Narrative. We held many workshops in Kashmir where we tried to know the various struggles and challenges that young aspiring women journalists are dealing with. So far, all our activities have been women-specific but we are ready to expand it for the opposite gender who want to contribute. But, still our prime focus will be women at large.
Today, i have started a small program based on my experiences of WP, "2013-voices-of-hope-program" which is a global platform and not only for Kashmiris. Things would have never been the same without World Pulse, Thanks a lot for changing my life. I owe you a lot.
Please i am looking forward to your valuable feedback, suggestions to make this venture a success.
NEED@ I AM LOOKING FOR CONTENT PARTNERS AND IF SOMEBODY IS READY TO HELP OTHER THAN THAT. PLEASE CONTACT US AT kashmirnarrative@gmail.com

Thanks
Much Love

Hi Aliya! Looks like a great

Hi Aliya! Looks like a great initiative. Could you specify a bit more what you mean by "content partner"? (I'm not from a Media or Journalism background so my apologies if that is a basic question ^^)
I could give a hand on some things if needed and if it's in my capacities! But more details would be much appreciated :)
Good luck,
A.

Hello

Dear Aurore,
Thank you so much for showing your interest in my post. Actually my requirements are not specific. I am looking for different support system to make my initative for the women a success. By content partners, I mean who can share the stories on my website on their news outlets so that the writers participators in the program would be happy that their work is getting noticed besides Kashmir. I am also looking for the mentors who can guide the participants as well as individuals or institutions that can provide or guide me in crafting the learning material for the participants in the upcoming program. Here is the link of the program guidelines http://izmedia.org/index.php/program-guidelines as well as the deatils of the program http://izmedia.org/index.php/2013-voices-of-hope-program. Let me know what can be possible.

Best
Aliya (aliyabashir786@gmail.com)
