OUR STORY ------------------------------------------------- Equity Links Enterprises (ELE) Audio and Video Production is a registered entity specializing in Audio and Video products in Tanzania. Equity Links Enterprises was established and registered in 2004 with an aim of enabling communities living in peripheral areas of Dar es Salaam City to access electronic communication services such as internet, fax, and telephones.
On an average about 136 customers (both men and women) used to access the indicated services in a day. Through our help desk it was clear that the majority of our customers were young women and men searching for jobs through the internet. However, the advancement of the mobile phone technology empowered communities to access personalized internet services easily and as a result the number of customers declined significantly. The search for jobs was a clear verification of the Tanzania high unemployment statistics which stood at of 11 percent (10 percent men and 12 percent women) in 2007.
The need to contribute towards reducing unemployment motivated ELE to establish and Audio and Video production entity which could create long and short term jobs in the entertainment industry. Since the establishment of the Audio and Video production in 2012, ELE has produced two films and the third one is in the making. The First film entitled “Struggle to the Unknown Destiny” provided short term employment to 67 artists and 7 members of the crew. Likewise the second film entitled “The Minister” also provided short term employment to 51 artists and 10 members of the crew. Also business entities like hotels and other service providers were able to get short term financial contracts. ELE is geared to grow into a big and reputable film making house of the future.
