Africa Centre

African Communities Engagement Session this Saturday

The centre will serve as a multifunctional space offering cultural events, educational programs, recreational programs, wellness services, and economic resources tailored to the African descent community’s needs. Additionally, it will act as a focal point for networking, collaborations, and celebrating cultural events, aiming to enhance the quality of life and foster unity among Edmontonians of African descent. Ultimately, it will empower us with a sense of belonging, increased access to opportunities, and a platform to amplify our voices.
