Our mission is to support African migrants in any possible way, in particular through communication with broadcast news, stories and information relating to living in Malta and in Europe through our online community radio, web magazine, video clips and podcasts.
We empower immigrants with capacity building activities through our integration projects ( local and EU funded) that impart life and soft skills, media and digital literacy.
In terms of advocacy, we identify special challenges of the African immigrants in Malta and lobby for positive changes by bringing them to the attention of Governments and other relevant authorities, and to achieve that, we belong to, and work with numerous advocacy groups active in Malta and abroad.
