African Women’s Alliance

The African Women’s Alliance started as an organization to get together as families, for women to teach their children their social culture, to know that Africa is not a country, but a continent of 54 countries. It started as a picnic, but expanded into the Afro Festival, to let the children participate in dancing, in drama, in telling stories about the origins of different countries of Africa. And now the African Women’s Alliance helps women who are new to Canada, who don’t know the places to go, and help them with the English language.
