About Dedebit Media
Dedebit Media is a pioneering media organization dedicated to preserving the history, values, and heritage of Tigray that have long been distorted and exploited by external forces. Recognizing the urgent need for a platform that accurately represents Tigrayan culture and challenges false narratives, Dedebit Media emerged as a result of the Second Tigray Uprising, symbolizing the unwavering spirit of resilience and determination of the Tigrayan people.
Our primary mission is to safeguard the interests and dignity of Tigray by rectifying historical distortions, reclaiming stolen heritage, and ensuring the ongoing security and prosperity of the region. We are committed to upholding fairness, courage, and journalistic integrity, tirelessly striving to dispel the confusion between those who rightfully own history and those who exploit it for personal gain.
An unfortunate consequence of the misinformation spread by unitarist elements is the misrepresentation of Tigray’s pivotal role in Ethiopian history. Even Tigrayan youth, born and raised in the region, are unaware of their own heritage and erroneously attribute it to others. Dedebit Media aims to rectify this through comprehensive education and shedding light on the true historical contributions of Tigray. We believe it is profoundly disheartening to witness Tigrayan youth leaving their homeland to learn about their own cultural treasures elsewhere, while others falsely claim ownership.
Recognizing Tigray’s rich historical and cultural significance, Dedebit Media acknowledges the numerous internal and external challenges it faces. We understand the necessity of presenting accurate and timely information to counteract distorted narratives effectively. As Tigray’s reliable media source, we are committed to being a steadfast pillar of support during challenging times, ensuring that Tigray continues to progress.
For Tigray to thrive as a self-reliant region, it requires a media outlet that prioritizes thoughtful analysis, critical thinking, and responsible journalism. Dedebit Media assumes the crucial role of the fourth estate in the democratic process, spearheading efforts to educate and empower the people. We aim to inspire positive change and foster collaboration among educators, policymakers, and other stakeholders. By engaging qualified professionals and promoting international standards, Dedebit Media strives to enhance its global competitiveness and elevate Tigray’s standing among the world’s leading nations.
In the near future, Dedebit Media will establish its bylaws with the assistance of legal professionals, further solidifying its commitment to operating with integrity, transparency, and adherence to the law.
Dedebit Media is proud to be the voice of Tigray, disseminating knowledge, inspiring progress, and celebrating the history, language, and culture that define our remarkable region.
