As Tigrianas we firmly believe a free and independent media has a critical role in upholding high standards of good governance. Freedom of expression is fundamental to building democracy. Tigray deserves to see a clear focus on the development agenda on transparent and accountable Government. It is essential for growth, services, and poverty reduction. Without it, countries, societies, and states ultimately fail. Encouraging open and effective media improves the environment for long-term social, political, and economic stability.
The reason behind the foundation of Atranos Media
When we consider the importance, acceptance, reliability, and coverage of media, the need to have one becomes paramount. In the 21st century, the existence of independent media is a road to democracy. Without independent media, it is almost impossible to hold government officials into account. Media is one of the essential tools to establish democracy, development, and peace in any country. Media is a bridge connecting the people and Government; media is also a market linking buyers and sellers. So the importance of media to Tigirans in particular and the entire continent, in general, is endless. With the fast-moving technology around the globe, transmitting current and up-to-date information to our society is extremely important. So we believe our media will contribute to filling the gap of media shortages in our community.
Reasons and meaning of Atranos.
The civilization and existence of Tigray is always connected with Christianity and Islam. As a result, development, discovery, governmental administration, commercial activities, essential medication, and others were initiated and developed in the ancient books of Christianity and Islam. The content of these books is broadcasted to the world from Atranos (Podium). In the 21st century, politicians and reglues leaders transmit their teaching and policies to their followers from the stage behind the podium ( Atranos). Hence the reason to call Atranos.
Legaligty of Atranos Media Tigray

The purpose of Atranos Media Tigray
The overall purpose of Atranos Media Tigray is to become a voice for the voiceless. The people of Tigray have made countless sacrifices for their country. In the 17 years of armed struggle alone, Tigrians paid a heavy price to benefit all Ethiopians. On the contrary, our people are being treated as second-class citizens in their own country. Since Abiy Ahmed came into power, it has become increasingly impossible for Tigrians to live and work in their own country.
The Ethiopian Government waged a genocidal war on our people and is in complete denial and fabrication. So to narrow the gap of media outlets in our community, become a voice for our people, hold criminals accountable, and bring perpetrators to justice, the existence of Atranos Media Tigray and other media from the Tigrian community has become paramount.
Once the genocidal war is over, our media will mainly concentrate on maintaining and developing our social capital, human resources, natural resources, religious and historical resources. These will eventually lead Tigray to become a land of peace & democracy, economically prosperous, and the center of tourism. As a result, our media will play a significant role to introduce our tourism and other natural and cultural resources to the outside world.
Modernising Tigiran Farmers
As a result of the current war, Tigray farmers have lost their livestock, farming materials, crops, foods, and other household belongings. As a result, continuing their standard farming duty and planting crops in this rainy season has become a significant challenge for Tigray farmers. In 2022 however, we would like to see Tigray farmers transforming into modern farms. With this in mind, Atranso Media has already started this project. We are in the process of introducing the project to all Tigrians in the diaspora. Once we complete the awareness stage, we will begin raising funds to buy tractors and other farming technology.
