AJI realizes that developing journalism cannot be alone, it requires collaboration with many parties. Both the press parties such as the Press Council, media companies, other journalist associations, as well as institutions related to certain issues, such as the National Commission on Human Rights, Banking, NGOs, etc.
In addition to collaboration can be done online, there is also a need for a place to meet, gather together to exchange ideas, ideas and joint actions. Meanwhile AJI Indonesia's office located at Jalan Kembang Raya no 6, Central Jakarta has been occupied since 2004.
The age of the building has reached 30 years because it was built in 1988. The condition of the building which is already unfit for habitation, makes AJI Indonesia temporarily have to contract for a while on Jalan Sigura-gura, Duren Tiga, South Jakarta. This house has to be torn down for safety.
The Journalism House was built and dedicated to:
A place to build ideas and ideas of future journalism that are free, independent, ethical and prosperous
To be a journalism knowledge center and training center for journalists and the public
A place to develop ideas for the Journalist Community
A place to develop creativity for the AJI Indonesia secretariat team.
