There’s an old African proverb that says “If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” We have to go far — it's not an option. We must make a conscious community to help each other. And when we lend a hand to those in need, we will all go far.
The Perth community is frequently scattered. Whether this is due to politics or 'not knowing what's out there', we all seem to exist in our own bubbles.
However, those that escape the bubble seem to grow exponentially. From my many amazing African friends, I have heard of much struggle and growth. Many times this came from engaging in multiple communities and lifestyles.
Our vision for Africans in Perth is to grow the collaboration between the African Community as a whole. We strive to find all the information in Perth and put it together. And when our minds come together, the dots connect themselves.
