The WOFIJ network is the global voice of national and regional associations of specialized social topics and entire journalism issues reportage.

The World Federation of Intercultural Journalists (WOFIJ) aims to remind the human kinds at all the legality processes could cause interactions between one or more cultures because along with other Aid and humanitarian emergency professionals, journalists are often “first responders” when an earthquake, prolonged conflict, civil war or a terrorist attack devastates a community. WOFIJ’s mandate is to train, communicate and promote sustainable human development with equity, participation and democracy. It is the only network in the world specialized to all journalism categories reportage in particularly intercultural issues.

The reason being behind WOFIJ Strategically is that the media practitioners face the challenge to identify resources that could provide early notification about developing stories related to humanity issues; background information; and timely, accurate reports about human kind’s events existing in their livelihoods. As well as to limit the lack of specialized group of media professionals who are responsible human kinds intercultural issues reporting that might compromise accuracy or carefulness in reporting the topic.

However, WOFIJ needs to designate and train intercultural issues reporting by its member journalists associations by increasing the number of reporters who cover the area and just as many media today designate reporters to cover politics, financial markets, and other specific “beats.”

The most intercultural relief comes from within developed and the developing world in which consists of seven livelihoods from the Skyage zone to under-ground territory according to the God holy adages by means of heritage storytelling the World Federation of Intercultural Journalists (WOFIJ) will cover efforts by indigenous societies and individuals to prevent, anticipates, and responds to climate change.

The mission of the World Federation of Intercultural Journalists (WOFIJ) is to build into a strong, independent and committed to promote excellence in intercultural coverage journalism worldwide by supporting journalists and the writers in the globe through advocacy building efforts by means of theology respect within the communities due to social awareness.

WOFIJ VISION

The vision of the World Federation of Intercultural Journalists (WOFIJ) is to build WOFIJ into a strong, independent and committed apex organization by promoting excellence by way of intercultural coverage within the journalism industry.

Finally, the WOFIJ headquarter is located in Mogadishu, the capital city of Somalia and it is a Somalian charity organization registered in Somalia and is a network and Global association dedicated to promoting education understanding and awareness of the intercultural side effects in which might cause infect through the honest and accurate reporting of local, regional and international side by side management and development issues. It acted as the head of national intercultural reporting journalist associations or media organizations of more than 194 countries in the world. WOFIJ is the newest and will be the largest organization of professional journalism industry of more than 194 countries in the globe.

The novel objective behind by WOFIJ is to be a charitable confederation is the prolonged civil war since in 1990 by which causes massive community misunderstanding towards the difference among theology and manmade conventional rights charter rather than the holy Koran adage. It was on January 11, 1975, when late Somali President, H. E. Siyaad Barre, announced a decree for women (Xeerka Qoyska), giving Somali women equal inheritance right. As it happened, the new decree, which had a clause safeguarding women’s inheritance right, met a strong opposition at its early stage. Many men denounced the new law on religious grounds. Encouraged by some religious men, many young men organized protests on Friday sermons. In these sermons, they criticized the new law; and regard the observance of equal inheritance right as a step toward atheism. These religious men, lay or sheikh, attacked the new law and assaulted the morality and the goals of the Revolution, assailing in particular the President for ignoring his faith and denying the Islamic values of woman, family, and motherhood.  They said justice and equality is one of the pillars of Islam and it helps eliminating all forms of inequality. They spoke about the importance of family in Muslim society.

On the other hand, in an interview he gave to an Egyptian Magazine, ROSE AL-YUSUF (below), the President made a reference to foreign involvement in Somali affairs. He said that these foreign agents make use of religion to create riots and unrest in the country. The President declared that those who question Xeerka Qoyska must know that they are law breakers, despite their use of the slogan “Allahu Akbar”. He said the new family law (Xeerka Qoyska) was the culmination of long struggle for equal inheritance right. The President also underlined that “Somali woman was a major pillar in our old and contemporary struggle. Without her, it was impossible for Somalia to become free.”

As result of this mistake for Gender Intercultural based dissimilarities among Somali community and their leadership caused death displacement and refugee crisis in across the world but yet although their country administration died gender based violence related with inheritance issue, they have remaining same illiterate condition related to the inheritance project and continuing living nations approved the inheritance charter through the United Nations (UN) system.

That is why Mr. Daud Abdi Daud formed the World Federation of Intercultural Journalists (WOFIJ) because it was the Year 1975 looms large in the annals of Somali history. It was also the year the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed as International Women’s Year. The special objective of International Women’s Year was to promote equality between men and women.

International Women’s Year (IWY) was the name given to December 15, 1975 by the United Nations. Since that year March 8 has been celebrated as International Women’s Day,[1] and the United Nations Decade for Women, from 1976 to 1985, was also established.

WOFIJ will be the knowledge home reminding everyone hundred years in past and ahead due to the human kind’s illiteracy including the media professionals and will also open a new window by thematic research approaches.
