Our mission is to bring all African together by providing services through a social, economic, cultural and educational outreach program where all cultures are respected
One of our goals and longtime inspiration is to have a safe space to exercise freely without worrying about the societal shackles and space inaccessibility tied to women. An immigrant and Muslim, we have yet to find a space that share the values which we uphold. Many of the indoor gyms we have seen allows for the mixture of genders. In contrast, many of the female only gyms are outrageously expensive. This makes it difficult for our African community to contemplate exercising let alone actively exercising in public places.
Projects in focus: Education and Health
