Why do we celebrate Africa Day?

Africa Day is a day of celebration for Africans and people of African descent all over the world and has even morphed into Africa Month which is celebrated throughout the month of May.

It is a day to celebrate the founding of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) which was created on 25 May 1963. The OAU is now known as the African Union (AU) consisting of 55 member states. Can you identify the member states in the map below?

All are welcome to celebrate Africa Day with us at the Africa Center

This is a great day to learn about and try mouth-watering foods from all across the African continent. This exploration of food will be coupled with an array of programs for all ages, including an arts and crafts section for children, a fashion show and a talk on nutrition in Africa.

Come and join us for great food, culture, music and crafts from across the African continent! From dress to accessories, we will also be selling different kinds of African clothes at the center on the Africa Day.
