JapaCity is a diaspora-driven digital media innovation addressing the psycho-social challenges of international migration. It is a digital media solution aimed at impacting the journeys, careers, lives, and psycho-social well-being of immigrants while contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
JapaCity is on a mission to deploy the power of media storytelling to entertain, educate, inspire, transform and impact.
Apart from promoting equality, diversity and inclusion for members of global majority, JapaCity recognizes, documents, showcases, appreciates and celebrates the inspirational stories of resilient and successful immigrants.
The station’s ultimate mandate is to beam a searchlight on the lives, tales, stories, experiences, journeys and struggles of emigrants and immigrants, identifying and addressing the critical challenges they face, and providing a supportive media space that empowers and inspires them to adapt, survive, thrive and succeed in their new countries.
“The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development recognizes that migration is a powerful driver of sustainable development, for migrants and their communities.
It brings significant benefits in the form of skills, strengthening the labour force, investment and cultural diversity, and contributes to improving the lives of communities in their countries of origin through the transfer of skills and financial resources.” – International Organization for Migration.
JapaCity’s programming is designed to address the critical challenges faced by members of the global majority living far away from their home countries.
JapaCity’s most exciting programming style is its inclusive media ‘safe space’ that is designed to provide psychological and emotional support for immigrants who are experiencing any form of psychological or emotional distress or anguish, as well as learn from real-life stories and experiences that can help struggling immigrants cope, survive, adapt, thrive and succeed on their journeys.
Apart from its unique entertainment style designed to make immigrants ‘feel at home’ away from home, all media shows are designed to inform and educate the audience, touching crucial aspects of working, studying or living abroad such as immigration, health and wellbeing, marital and family life, parenting, finances, career, study and a host of others.
