About us

EuroAfricaMedia Network: Offering Unified Culturally Adapted Services For The African Diaspora world-wide. EuroAfricaMedia Network was set up in May 22, 2004 against the perpetual, one-sided, negative presentation of Africa in westernchris-Ezeh-profile media. The EuroAfrica Media Network is a unique, authoritative African media organization operating from Europe and serving a worldwide audience via its two bilingual portals (International Page - in English and Local Page - in German).

We are a united Network of world-wide, European and African Professionals from different fields of specialization, working together with a very strong conviction to make a great difference in the world. EACN has more than 125 correspondents and professionals and about 35 active volunteers world-wide. The activities of the network are on a 24/7 media based and mostly online piloted by the best motivated young talents of the information age.  

We are our brothers keeper and we stress and  believe in action and involvement rather than in  deliberations. In this way our lofty dream to build "a world-wide, strong united network of Professionals and individuals from different fields and backgrounds with a common, strong conviction not just to TALK but to be actively participative and involved, to make a great difference in the world becomes steadily a reality.

EACN unites those who believe in the African  “Live and let live” philosophy which lives in African Ubuntu Tradition.  UBUNTU is an ancient African communal social construct that simply means “I am because we are”  “That giving is Sharing and Sharing is Caring”

EACN offers its international community well-selected interactive  services like news, entertainment, networking via our great data bank, partner search, lifestyle, medical counseling. Education/training, business/promotions and advertising opportunities, tours, travel, online medical services, web design/computer training, intercultural counseling, cross-cultural competence training/seminars. In cooperation with the University of Hamburg, we also offer diverse volunteer opportunities in our Network and in different African countries for interested young Europeans.
 
The media  organisation was founded as a result of discontentment documented by our Europe-wide survey among the majority of people of African descent in Europe, (Euro-Africans or African-Europeans), and in the diaspora, on the perpetual misrepresentation of Africa by the western media whereby, Africa is often seen or presented ignorantly as a country, where nothing else reigns other than cataclysms, hunger, diseases and wild animals roaming in the Savannah.

EuroAfrica Media Network places great emphasis on enduring education / mass communication measures because we know that a lot of harm have been done to Africa. Over decades, many saddening images have been portrayed and blood-cuddling tales told about Africa. Many Africans in Diaspora know that these images often do not reflect the realities of their respective countries in Africa where they originally come from. Consequently, we will focus on this neglected positive aspects which matter so much for Africans, with the aim of correcting the long polluted minds and to encourage more intercultural relationship with all people world-wide. We look forward to coproducing African related programmes and Documentaries with Europeans and all non African Television Stations around the world with a view to creating more positive portraits on Africa.
  
The EAM Network as an autonomous, business, and multimedia consultancy organisation, is established to provide technical assistance to private, public and nonprofit organisations but equally to accomplish a line of concrete aims: To dismantle, challenge and expose poorly researched and often ignorant journalism that consistently portray a biased profile of Africa. To encourage imbibe and motivate in the African, through our publications, a sense of positive mindset towards the finding of solutions rather than waiting for solutions from foreign benefactors. To promote multicultural peaceful co-existence, youth development and understanding via Internet utility and eCommerce services. These include intercultural training programmes and art collection, critique, exhibition, and sales.

To network, encourage and support Africans world-wide to learn, use and be part of the present information technology revolution as evidenced by todayˊs radical but dynamic developments on the internet. It is our dream at EAC, to empower Africans and African groups in this direction so that they are not literarily left out in the present computer/internet revolution. In this regard, our computer school has been and will continue to help to give Africans the necessary support while our media department with its trained and qualified staff is solely devoted to helping them in the realization of film and theatre productions, documentaries, Advertisement-campaign in various media, web-hosting and the creation of personal, organizational or business websites including complete maintenance, support and training.

Our Online Magazine offers a variety of services and features to all visitors and has the sole mission to develop and nurture an interactive cyber-magazine that not only positively defends Africa, but represents Africans, friends of Africa or people of African descent who either reside in, wish to reside in, or have an interest in Continental Europe. The EAC is poised to erect information bridges between Africa and the occidental world. We will inform and create room for the needed reconciliation. Part of this mission would be to uncover, publish and document forgotten cultural/historical facts for the oncoming generations.

The EAC is committed to the promotion of independent media that will expand civic participation by adding new voices and expressions into the public discourse via the provision of media space for individuals and groups who otherwise would never be heard of. At the EAC we believe that diversity is strength, thus the EAC is committed to the presentation of researched Internet themes that engage creative criticism, advance issues and represent relevant points of view not usually seen on commercial or public mass media.

The main aim of this project is the stimulation of awareness and the restoration of extinct or threatened  trees and plant varieties in the African sub region. In Eastern Nigeria, trees such as Ugiri, Ukwa, Udara, Icheku, and Uburu have almost vanished from the    environmental scene and need urgent continued propagation and protection. The alarming deforestation rate in the African sub region is, among other reasons, a result of poverty, increased use of local firewood and the lack of environmental awareness. This project is aimed at the propagation of solar cooking thereby creating a reduction in the use of firewood and thus forest dissemination.

The Digital Inclusion Project:
At the EAC “digital inclusion" is our answer to “digital divide”. It is our vision of a future in which all people particularly Africans have access to the social and economic opportunities of the 21st century, and can use technology as a means to learn, work and thrive. Our efforts in digital inclusion seek to create new opportunities for the communities we serve, by forging new partnerships with private and public entities to close the gap between technology-empowered and the excluded technology-impoverished communities. Providing access to technology is critical, but it must be about more than just physical access. Computers and connections are insufficient if the technology is not used effectively because it is not affordable; if people do not understand how to put it to use or if they are discouraged from using it; or if the local economy cannot sustain its use. The following issues are the determining factors in whether or not people have Real Access to ICT -- access that goes beyond just physical access and makes it possible for people to use technology effectively to improve their lives.

What is the digital divide?
Simply put, the "digital divide" is the wide division between those who have access to ICT and are using it effectively, and those who do not. Since information and communications technologies (ICTs) are increasingly becoming a foundation of our societies and economies, the digital divide means that the information "have-nots" are denied the option to participate in new ICT jobs, in e-government, in ICT-improved healthcare, and in ICT- enhanced education. Often, the information "have-nots" are in developing countries, and in disadvantaged groups within countries. For the EAC, the digital divide is thus a lost opportunity - the opportunity for the information "have-nots" to use ICTs to improve their lives.
