Presenter and producer Samia Jallali Kessai and her film crew recorded 26 episodes of a women’s program called You Are Precious. It is in Arabic with Kabyle subtitles, making it accessible to different communities spread throughout Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Mauritania and Libya.
When SAT-7 ARABIC launched Needle and Thread, its magazine show for young women, the goal was clear from the start. As Maggie Morgan, an award-winning Egyptian documentary and feature film maker, describes the series “This program seeks to present women that are fully alive. Women not only need to embrace their God-given identities, but to embrace them in full color.”
This 40-minute talk show has been going strong since 2002. A recent series combined cartoon and film clip segments with live entertainment and discussions in the studio.
The church in North Africa has grown significant in recent years. Yet many still worship together in secret or are isolated unable to attend a church. Broadcasting in the Kabyle language, SAT-7 ARABIC is now ministering to North Africans through Free Souls, a documentary series featuring Algerian Christians’ testimonies.
This discipleship program is aimed at North African women who may have few or no opportunities for Christian fellowship. It is presented by three women in an intimate living room-style setting and particularly aims to help illiterate women.
In this program, the presenters seek to give answers to the challenges Iranian women face today by looking to the example of women in the Bible. Topics have included: how godly women can bring hope in hopeless situations; respecting those who are different; and the role of love in marriage.
