MISSION
TO EDUCATE: (especially those most deprived in the deep zone; with water and electricity problems), Ghana is often described as one of West Africa’s development success stories: the country’s growth and poverty reduction rates are among the very best in the region. Despite these many successes, however, Ghana’s rural population still faces some challenges.
    Poverty rates in the country are not evenly dispersed. The most recent estimates suggest that roughly 40 per cent of rural people are poor, while only 10 percent of the urban population lives below the poverty line.
    Ghana ranks 135 out of 187 countries on the United Nations Development Programme’s 2011     Human Development Index – a comparative measure of life expectancy, literacy, education and standards of living for countries worldwide.
    This time Akoma TV sees it as a responsibility to educate our people in the Rural Areas especially the deprived areas on Health (Aids <STDs>, Malaria, Teenage Pregnancy, Mother care, Maternal Immortality and other health problems).

TO PROMOTE CULTURE AND TRADITIONS:   
We learn Culture by observing, listening, talking and interacting with other people.
This is a country whose immense cultural diversity both thrills and fascinates visitors, drawing them into a daily rhythm that is uniquely and unmistakably African. A common feature of all Ghanaian culture is a love of festivals. Our target is to help let almost every Ghanaian, young and old, home or away, get to know the history of our rich culture and traditions.

TO PROMOTE TOURISM AND HISTORIC PLACES:
Tourism as we know is a commercial organization and operation of vacations and visits to places of interest. This brings different people from various parts of the world, black and white, and it also brings a lot of profit to the country.

ORGANIZATION OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS:  
Creating inter-educational activities and organizing programs that will help maintain peace, strengthen solidarity and friendship within our societies is one of the key missions of Akoma TV. We promote youthful and other programs for Schools, Churches, Communities, Institutions and others.  Such programs are:
* Road Safety Programs: -  Road Works Automotive Check-Up
   1.  Road Safety Rules                         2.   Education of Road Signs
   3.
Road Safety Health Walk               4.  Road Safety Education    for schools among others

Ghana loses over $230m every year to road accidents. Road accidents are a     national issue in Ghana. Statistics show that four people die daily on Ghanaian roads due to road accidents. Estimates show that Ghana loses over 230 million dollars yearly due to road accidents with more than 1600 deaths. The loss correlates to 1.7% of the country’s Gross Domestic Product.
    
    * Health Program: -
Educate the public through television and film, including documentaries and working with theatrical/cultural organizations (drama, music, dance and other cultural forms of expression) to create more awareness of the ills in our society, such as: gender inequality, child abuse, drug abuse, circumcision, HIV/AIDS, homosexuality, etc. Also various other developmental and social issues: such as malnutrition, environmental degradation, moral decline, sanitation and primary health care, handicapped issues, among others.
