    Television is the most powerful and one of the fastest communication platforms for information dissemination, awareness generation and empowerment, coupled with an on – going interactive short messaging service (SMS) which is the fastest communication platform, the combination thus becomes one of the best platforms to convey the values chosen by the endowing organizations – this is the essence of HOMEVIDA. The Platform’s advantage is in the number of people across Africa and beyond that will watch these competing films and imbibe the value that they present. It is also an awesome opportunity for any institution or organization to communicate, educate and influence people along the lines of the ideals for which it is established. HOMEVIDA also presents a tremendous opportunity for marketing and brand re-enforcement for businesses, as the platform can provide the most veritable access to the homes and hearts of Nollywood’s  over 200 million viewers across Africa and the Diaspora.
