YALI TV is the premier television platform showcasing inspiring and informative stories of Young Africans across the continent and beyond. The initiative would also develop media content that is best in value-based leadership to stream online via social media and on selected television channels across Africa. YALI TV is situated in Accra Ghana operational from the YALI RLC West Africa office at GIMPA, Accra-Ghana.
YALI TV is the first TV platform dedicated primarily to the Young African Leadership Initiative (YALI) to broadcast globally the impacts and efforts of leading change by fellows of the network. It would also capture stories of other young changemakers on the continent, in the diaspora, and in the rest of the world.
We would reach our global audience through a 24hour online stream at www.yalitvonline.com, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and on other airing networks, making YALI TV accessible anywhere in the world. YALI TV is also partnering with other mainstream media channels in Ghana, the West African Sub-region and across the continent to expand our reach.
