Who we are
Since 1995, SAT-7 has aired educational and social impact programs to viewers across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) on our network of satellite television channels.
The escalating violence that followed the Arab Spring in 2011, particularly the Syrian crisis, prompted SAT-7 to respond to the pressing educational and development needs of the region with a more focused initiative. Joining the efforts of the wider NGO community, SAT-7 Education and Development (SAT-7 E&D) was founded in 2016 to better enable SAT-7 to advance educational projects through its programs.
SAT-7 E&D seeks in particular to improve the wellbeing of marginalised groups such as women, children, the illiterate, the poor, the disabled, the internally displaced and refugees, irrespective of religion, race, ethnicity and nationality. SAT-7 E&D specifically focuses on developing satellite television programs and online resources that contribute to tackling the urgent development needs of the region. SAT-7 E&D programming falls under three thematic pillars: education, health, and social development.
