NACA - Norfolk African Community Association

Description

naca

The Norfolk African Community Association was founded in 2001 by members of the African community in Norwich as a voluntary organisation, who espouse the need to promote and sustain African heritage among its members in Norfolk – United Kingdom.

Our aims and objectives:

  • to foster social cohesion amongst the scattered African persons or groups in Norfolk and thus mitigate any feelings or effects in isolation, social exclusion or racial abuse,
  • to provide a forum for association, consultation and mutual support particularly for members who are unemployed,
  • to promote personal development for self-reliance through activities that impart the appropriate knowledge and skills such as organic gardening, conservation science and other vocations that foster self-employment,
  • to sustain the African heritage through some social activities within the context of life in Britain, in collaboration with organisations with similar or complimentary aims &
  • to support the campaign for sustainable development and protection of the environment as well as advocacy of social justice and individual liberties.
