PROJECTS

Channel A TV participates in various community-based projects. Through media, we community development projects in order to enhance groups or individual awareness to events which improve our communities. Projects can cover almost anything, including the most obvious section of concern to any community, the welfare element.  Such projects often begin by small collection of motivated individuals within a community come together with a shared concern on “how can our community respond to the challenges, and maximize our opportunities  of our daily challenges as community?”

All community projects are different in some way. The size and scope of these projects do not affect our response to correspondence for as long as the project is focused on community development.
