Our Vision
SAT-7 ACADEMY To inspire impactfully, life-long learning across the Arabic-speaking world to help build better communities and contribute to the good of society and culture.
Our Vision
Our Mission
SAT-7 ACADEMY To provide Arabic-speaking viewers from all parts of society with complimentary educational opportunities. By providing this support, we aim to equip the next generation with the tools they need to build a better society, one marked by tolerance and creative free thought; and help teachers and parents to develop a more effective, child-centric approach to learning.
Everyone deserves the freedom to develop critical thinking and to express their hopes and dreams outside of rote learning.
George Makeen, Programming Director for SAT-7 ARABIC channels.
What we do
SAT-7 Academy programs focus on three thematic areas: education, health and social development.
We create programs to empower stronger communities whose constituents are empowered children, parents and teachers in their society.
We aim to partner with key stakeholders.
Why we do it
  When it comes to children’s education, we are of course concerned not to “lose a generation” because children never had the opportunity to go to school. SAT-7 has already begun some on-air classroom-style programming for displaced and refugee children in the Levant. But, the issues of education in the Arab World are much wider than the refugee crises and much deeper than just the need to read, write and do basic math. In the decade before the Arab uprisings or so called Arab Spring, the UNDP reports on Arab Human Development (2003 – 2009) cited three root causes for what it called the severe “backwardness” in the Arab World. One of these principle causes was the widespread lack of opportunity for a good education. Children need to be taught to think for themselves, to be encouraged to question, to be creative and to learn basic life skills. We also need to address the needs and attitudes of poorly trained teachers and parents, most of whom have not themselves experienced a form of education that goes beyond rote learning, where violence has been the normal way of maintaining class and home discipline and where an obsession with coming up with “the right” answers has stunted any free thought… (DR. TERRY ASCOTT, CEO)
