JS-International Assignment is a first-class news documentary production going beyond the headlines to tell stories in-depth and from many points of view so you can make up your own mind about the news that affects you. The show’s hallmark is its “Reaching the Unreachable” franchise – demanding answers and finding the truth.

Over five minutes of applause and screams greeted the Ghanaian journalist by the over one thousand journalists and students who attended the NightForRights which showcased Jefferson’s humanitarian reports in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Rwanda. The night also created awareness on the works of Journalists for Human Rights, a humanitarian organization that informs people about their rights. Founded in 2003, and having programs in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Malawi and Zambia, jhr currently reaches over 20-million Africans weekly with stories that inspire and create positive social change.
