MY SCHOOL FILMING COMPLETE – BUT LESSONS CONTINUE
My School, SAT-7’s pioneering program to provide high-quality complementary education in the Arab world, has wrapped up its fifth and final season. Since the program launched in 2015 in response to the war in Syria, SAT-7 has made over 400 episodes covering the region’s curriculum in the core subjects of mathematics, Arabic, English, science, and French.
Earthquake survivor thanks God in face of disaster
A man stands in front of a gigantic pile of rubble, fighting back tears as he speaks to a SAT-7 presenter via video call. His name is Omar, and behind him, collapsed into heaps, are buildings that once housed his mother, his aunt, and his neighbours. They died in their homes when central Morocco was shaken by a massive earthquake on the night of 8 September.
Help and hope for children of war
As new figures reveal that one in three children in the Middle East are living in conflict zones, SAT-7’s programs are addressing their needs, providing support and promoting peace across the region. According to reports by Save the Children, more than one in six children worldwide live in areas of armed conflict, with the Middle East having the highest regional figure at a staggering 39%.
Mobilising prayer for strength and comfort during disaster
SAT-7’s Arabic channels and viewer support team are mobilising prayer across the region and reaching out to viewers affected by the devastating earthquake in Morocco and catastrophic flooding in Libya.

“This story is a microcosm of a world of injustice and wrong that is perpetrated against the girls and women of my nation.” As we mark one year since the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody in Iran, SAT-7 presents the true story of an Iranian woman that highlights the mistreatment and suffering of women and girls in the country.
The women-led uprising in Iran: one year on
A year ago this week, a 22-year-old Iranian woman left her hometown in the west of Iran to go shopping with some relatives in the country’s capital, Tehran. She never came home. This is, of course, Mahsa Amini’s story, and her death will be forever remembered by the people of Iran.
Moroccan Christians ask for prayer
SAT-7 is sharing prayers across the Middle East for the people of Morocco after a major earthquake in the heart of the country killed over 2,000 people, with many thousands more left injured, homeless, and grieving.
Christlike response to suffering
The New Testament tells us that “everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” (2 Timothy 3:12, NIV). These words can be surprising, or even frightening, to Western ears. Yet for many believers in the Middle East, these words are their reality. How are God’s people supposed to respond to persecution?
