The African Association of Arizona (AFASA) is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization. Founded in February 1992, it aims to promote awareness and understanding of the African continent and Africans through education and cultural activities. The association is open to anyone who subscribes to the mission and vision of the association, including all Africans and friends of Africa.
The association is actively involved in developing an infrastructure for networking among friends of Africa and increasing awareness and appreciation of Africa’s rich cultural heritage.
The association is involved in various activities, including but not limited to volunteerism and fundraising for purposes of helping the less fortunate both in Arizona and in Africa. Since its inception, the association has been involved in raising funds for various Africa-related initiatives, such as supporting African refugees in the local community, scholarships for students, and for post-conflict reconciliation in afflicted African countries.
The association meets monthly, the second Sunday of the month, 2:00-4:00 PM, throughout the year, except in May.
According to an African expression, “a bracelet does not jingle.” We hope you can join us. Bring along a friend, family members, and colleagues. Together, we can make a difference. Ubuntu!
