The author discusses the nonprofit Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, which was established with an aim to help talented journalists to sustain their careers as foreign correspondents. He cites several lessons that they have learned in the five year existence of the center, including the importance of collaboration, the multimedia and the World Wide Web. He presents their move to employ the services of local journalists like Fatima Tlisova, who reported on the persecution of journalists in her home in North Caucasus, Russia.
