The number of people identifying as African Diaspora has continued to grow around Wales with little done to connect these communities; in Gwynedd, Bangor University has had a robust international recruitment strategy for a long time, the result of course creating a population of international students from undergraduates up to PhD level students & Post-docs whose stay in the area ranges from several months to decade. We at the North Wales African Society (NWAS) aim to help integrate these new growing African communities with our activities.
NWAS is creating an accessible platform for the population of African diaspora in the North Wales with focus in the social, education and business areas. We create and host events centred around African themes and topics, educate about the African continent and facilitate business and revenue generating with activities in North wales and on the African continent. Values of our organisation include; Embracing welsh language and society, friendship, shared interest, good neighbourliness, openness and inclusiveness, transparency, collaboration and active participation.
