Agen­der ad­vo­cacy ini­tia­tive, Stronger Ves­sels Net­work (SVN) has launched an in­ter­net-based tele­vi­sion, de­signed to ad­dress the plights of Nige­rian women.

To be known as “More Than A Wo­man TV” or sim­ply MORTAW TV, or­ga­niz­ers said the con­cept be­hind its in­tro­duc­tion is to ba­si­cally to ad­dress real is­sues plagu­ing women of in­ter­est, re­lease trans­for­ma­tional doc­u­men­taries as well as en­gage in mas­ter­mind trips and classes.

The TV’s host and ini­tia­tor, Do­lamu Badejo said what is needed is for as many women as pos­si­ble to join and sup­port MORTAW com­mu­nity and grow­ing net­work so as to set them­selves on trans­for­ma­tional jour­ney.

“We be­lieve to­gether we are stronger and can tri­umph over the worst of life’s cru­elty, if we look out for neigh­bours, stay in­formed, live em­pow­ered and trans­formed lives,” Badejo said.

The TV host fur­ther ex­plained view­ers of MORTAW TV can ac­cess any of its pro­grammes and doc­u­men­tary episodes at any time of the day. She how­ever said such ac­ces­si­bil­ity must be via sub­scrip­tion.

In his re­mark, the Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer and Founder, Mondo & Euodoó Ent, Moses Ag­boola, said the co­pro­duc­ing com­pany for the on­line TV said it is the as­pi­ra­tion of the on­line TV to make women get the best out of life.

He said the TV will in­spire women, the younger gen­er­a­tion and also en­ter­tain and act as men­tor for a num­ber of chal­lenges con­fronting them.

“The TV is ex­pected to give women a voice, ease their bur­den, of­fer them sup­port and love that they need while in­tro­duc­ing them to healthy and suc­cess­ful fam­i­lies of vic­tors. They will also be en­cour­aged to go through trans­for­ma­tion pro­cesses that will help them live the bet­ter ver­sion of them­selves,” he said.
