Mission StatementMORE »

African Television Network of New England (ATNNE) is an independent 501(c)(3) organization first established in 2004 to provide linguistically appropriate and culturally sensitive Television Program for the Greater Boston African community especially to those facing language or cultural gaps.

At the African Television Network of New England we believe that a community thrives when its disparate groups are supported in maintaining vibrant cultural identities as they are provided with the information and skills that will allow them to join their larger community as respected and productive members. Founded with this mission in mind, ATNNE endeavors to increase the visibility, and promote understanding, of the African community of greater Boston by providing a weekly television program called “The African Television Network.”

Since its inception in 2002, the show has expanded from one local access television station to four, and has served as a forum for social change and political involvement within the African community. Each hour-long program addresses a cultural, political and practical issue relevant to those linked by birth, family, or affinity to the continent of Africa. Among the expansive scope of themes and problems addressed include immigration, radicalization, mental health, suicide, housing, English language acquisition, and advice on starting a small business. Programs for youth, with representatives from the Ethiopian, Eritrean and Somali and West African community are an important and growing part of our schedules, as are a variety of cultural programs featuring African music and dance. Guests have included the US Ambassador to Ethiopia, Boston City council President Michelle Wu, as well as area doctors, professors, attorneys, church leaders, and other professionals. Currently, ATNNE is the only in-depth source of news and information for the area’s growing African community and the only showcase of African cultural, social and political issues consistently available to the larger community.

Perhaps a television show might be perceived as a luxury with no real community impact. We strongly disagree. This medium can be a powerful force for change (which is one reason why oppressors who wish to strangle dissent attack independent media first). It is very empowering for people in the greater Boston African community to be able to access programs in their native language, to hear from community role models, to witness their culture showcased: giving this community this voice helps create a strong cultural identity, which can become a powerful instrument in the fight against the divisiveness and damage of racism.

Background Statement

Timetable/Brief History of ATNNE:

2002: The African Television Network of New England began with a single weekly show called “Voices of Abyssinia” on the Boston Neighborhood Network (BNN channel 23)

2003: In response to community demand, ATNNE expanded their outlets to include Cambridge Community Television (CCTV channel 96)

2004: ATNNE became a nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) status.

2004: In order to reach a larger audience and to extend the range of programming to address the interests and issues of the larger African community, ATNNE changed the name of the show to “The African Television Network” to reflect the show’s change of focus from East Africa to the whole continent.

2004: ATTNE continued its growth by adding two new outlets: Malden Television (MATV channel 3) and Somerville Community Access Television (SCAT channel 3).

2005: ATTNE has continued the process of exploring new outlets and developing programs of relevancy to the communities it serves. Acquiring funding to help ATTNE become independent and to facilitate continued development has become our immediate priority.


Impact Statement

ATNNE has several changes that we would like to see by the end of the grant period. Our driving purpose in seeking this grant is to increase our capacity in acting as a clearinghouse of information for the local African community, including reporting on breaking news, providing cultural programming, and interviewing foreign dignitaries.

With additional funding, ATNNE will be able to respond to breaking news events more quickly. Although the nature of these events is, obviously, unpredictable, having a dedicated staff, and equipment of our own, will mean that we can respond in a shorter time frame than we are currently able to. Our goal, once our capacity has increased through hiring employees and purchasing equipment, is to respond to government and community requests to disseminate information by producing a program within 48 hours of receiving the request.

With additional funding, ATNNE will also be able to conduct more interviews with local and visiting dignitaries during the year in which this grant is in effect. As discussed above, we have no lack of people to interview, but simply don't have the resources to grant every interview. Thus, with additional funding, we plan to increase the number of interviews to a total of 30 over the course of the grant year on relevant issues like suicide, radicalization, and migration that would not have been possible without our own equipment. These interviews will provide important cultural information for the local community, as well as political news and information about Africa. Additionally, because the political situation in Africa is not as open as that in the United States, interviewing dignitaries here in Boston will allow ATNNE to ask more hard-hitting questions and challenge African leaders in a way that would not be possible on the continent.

The result of all of these efforts will be a more informed African community in Boston. Whether it's the breaking news of a health crisis that affects them and their families, or an interview with the leader of their home country, our expanded capacity will be of tremendous benefit to the local community.


Needs Statement

Our plan is to use the funding we obtain to become independent of our partner access television stations in terms of scheduling and equipment. With our own equipment, and with some funds for general operation and program development, we will be able to produce our show according to our own judgment, opportunities and schedule and not have to defer to the sometimes conflicting needs of the stations. We will be able to increase the relevancy of our programming and respond more quickly to urgent news and information. The value of what we offer to the community will only increase as we move toward complete independence. Also, through ATNNE’s significant interaction with several other organizations serving this community in various capacities, we would use the funding to perform a needs assessment with the goal of using ATNNE programming and visibility in the community to help create a mentoring program for the youth of this community (primarily male) who are struggling with issues of employment, health, violence and despair.

CEO Statement

Dear Friends,

For ATNNE, the concept of movement building translates into community building. ATNNE’s community outreach efforts serve the purpose of making the African community visible, connected and empowered. By offering practical advice to help this community overcome the barriers that most immigrant communities face, by showcasing the many achievements, professional and artistic, of community members, and by providing a forum for the pressing political and social issues that affect the community in greater Boston as well as in Africa, ATNNE intends to support and sustain cultural pride while offering members of this community information and skills that can help them take full advantage of their opportunities.

The show is recognized by the community as making an invaluable contribution, and the show’s host, Mahdi Omar, has received praise for his service, including citations from the Ethiopian Community Mutual Assistance Association and the Somali Development Center. 

We collaborate with a number of local agencies and organizations:

  • African Community Economic Development of New England (ACEDONE) Boston
  • Ethiopian Community Mutual Assistance Association (ECMAA) Cambridge
  •  Somali Development Center (SDC) Boston
  •   National African Community Organization (Boston)

These collaborations include in-depth interviews, announcements and the sharing of resources.

Because ATNNE uses a medium – television and Web – that is accessible to most area residents and because we offer the only Amharic and English language programming in the region, our service is unique. Without ATNNE, the African community would lose a vital source of news, information, and culture, and a critical tool for improving their lives and building their community.

Executive Director 

Board Chair Statement

Dear Friends,

African Television Network serves the estimated 15,000 – 20,000 members of the greater Boston African community, many of whom, as native Amharic, Somali, Swahili and Arabic speakers, have not yet learned English and are still struggling to find employment in their former fields. This population is vulnerable to feelings of alienation both from their own cultural milieu and from the new communities in which they find themselves. 

There is a great need in this community for visibility and validation, as well as practical advice, as people struggle with the roadblocks typical to immigrant communities such as language barriers and difficulty accessing work, housing, and healthcare. ATNNE provides the only Amharic and English programming available locally. For many in the African community, it is the only televised source of relevant news and information.

By giving this community a voice, by providing practical information and community outreach as well as celebrating the diversity and richness of this culture, ATNNE strives to support immigrant Africans and others of the community in becoming productive members of their new society without losing the strength, pride and integrity of their cultural identity.

STATEWIDE
The African Television Network is a weekly television program targeted at the estimated 15,000 to 20,000 African immigrants currently living in Greater Boston. ATNNE offers programming in English as well as some language of East Africa (e.g., Amharic ). Currently, ATNNE is the only in-depth source of news and information for the area's growing African community, and is the only showcase of African cultural, social, and political issues for the African diaspora living in Boston and its surrounding suburbs. ATNNE is thus a critical resource for this community, and is often approached by government officials and organizations, such as the Mayor's Office or the Department of Health, to distribute information. ATNNE's weekly program offers an essential lifeline to the African community, providing information about topics like immigration, suicide prevention, English language acquisition, and advice on starting a small business.

Programs

Studio and Field Production

There is a great need in the African Community for visibility and validation. ATNNE provides the only English and Amharic programming available .Local programs topics are wide ranging and include discussion of health, welfare, economic and social issue of paramount concern to African community. Guests on the studio and field production shows discuss critical issues such as radical Islam, suicide, immigration and crisis in the Horn of Africa. Many of these guests are prominent business people, educational and cultural leaders who often serve as role models to our youth. There is also a social emphasis on reaching to the youth in our African community. Our studio and  field produced programs are interspersed with African music, performing arts, and news of civic, cultural, and social events.

Program Long-Term Success 

Giving our community a voice by providing practical information and community outreach as well as celebrating the diversity and richness of African culture.

Program Success Monitored By 

ATNNE will work with its chosen capacity to develop a method of outcome evaluation and success. For the time being we rely on feedback from our viewers and African community at large in the form of phone calls and letters. Thus far all the feedback has been extraordinary and supportive of the programing, indicating a high level of constituent satisfaction.

Examples of Program Success 

The program is recognized by the community as making an invaluable contribution and the show host Mahdi Omar has received praise for his unwavering service, including citations and awards from the Ethiopian community Mutual Assistance Association, the Somali development Center, the United State Census Bureau, and from the National African Community Organization.

While there are several examples of success we could mention, among the most notable achievements we have registered include the prestigious seat at the “Cultural Creativity Conference on the Ethiopian American Diaspora” held at Harvard University, the formal appearance of former Boston Mayoral candidate John Connolly, as well as the current city counselor Michelle Wu at The African Television Network of New England.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
