Reaching viewers wherever they are
Our channels are broadcast on the three most widely used satellite platforms, as well as being viewable on social media, via our apps. Through these mediums, we are not only reaching the people of the Middle East and North Africa, but also people who have settled across Europe and other parts of the world.
For the seekers and spiritually-motivated. We created the
SAT-7 ARABIC channel. Currently, it broadcasts to 25 Arabic-speaking countries in the middle East and North Africa.
For children lacking a childhood. SAT-7 KIDS was created over 10 years ago. It is the first and only Arabic Christian channel dedicated exclusively to children and young people.
For the thousands of house churches worshiping in secret. SAT-7 PARS has become a resource. It broadcasts to millions of Persian-speakers in Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan.
For broken relationships.
SAT-7 TÜRK was established to address misconceptions about Christianity. It broadcasts to the people of Turkey and Turkish-speakers across Europe.
Social Impact Programs
The urgent and desperate needs of refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the region, particularly Syria, has inspired the foundation of SAT-7 ACADEMY. This educational channel launched in September 2017, aiming to decrease the education gap in the Middle East by proposing to simultaneously and holistically address the physical, emotional, relational, and intellectual aspects of MENA children, parents and teachers’ lives by promoting among others the concepts of tolerance, social cohesion, creativity, lifelong learning, dignity, freedom of expression and speech.
There are over 13 million children out of school across the region. Violence and instability jeopardize their futures and leave them vulnerable to the perils of poverty, child marriage, and radicalization, among others. These children, as well as their parents and teachers, can especially benefit from the empowerment of an education.
SAT-7 aims to create confident and independent thinkers that will critically assess what is given to them and make informed decisions. Without these values being instilled through education there will continue to be little space in MENA societies for religious, ethnic, or other marginalized minorities, thus perpetuating a social situation fraught with potential for conflict.
The way in which the Educational Channel envisions “inspiring learning across the Arabic speaking world to transform communities” is through Satellite Television and Internet (including Social and Streaming Media) as media for development to address development issues specific to the MENA region in order to empower individuals to make better choices and adopt new behaviors.
The chief development goals for this project are providing education, health and well-being, and human rights to Arabic speakers across the region.
