Africa meets the Achterhoek is a local initiative of Global Development Africa, to improve the integration of African migrants in the Netherlands. We do this by organizing empowerment training and cultural events where Dutch people can get to know the different African cultures and vice versa. These cultural events include African cuisine, music, dance and art.
GDA strives for a mix of African and Dutch audiences at these events, offering both Dutch and African performances and buffets. These days will be widely publicized to also reach people of non-African origin.
The aim is to reach African migrants through their own network and to invite and encourage them to use their own talents and qualities in a positive way. Thanks to events such as ‘Africa meets the Achterhoek’, there is more connection between both cultures.
Are you interested in our next event or would you like to contribute in any way? We would like to get in touch.
