This Web Page has been created to provide information for Southern Africans moving to the South Island of New Zealand. Christchurch is the major centre and we have a very active Southern African community group in this beautiful city. Our organisation is multiracial and multicultural including people from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana and Mozambique.
Congratulation to the newly appointed High Commisioner of the South African High Commission in Wellington, New Zealand - Her Excellency Ms N M (Zodwa) Lallie.
AFRICAN MEETING FOR AFRICANS
The widespread African Community in Canterbury plans to form a cohesive force and speak with one voice on matters affecting the well-being of Africans. The establishment of Canterbury’s African Council will create a platform where we network, organise social events, advocate for common matters affecting us such as health, immigration and employment among other issues.
A preliminary committee has been formed to engage the African community in Canterbury to bring forth their ideas and expectations in the form of a draft constitution. Against this background, you are cordially invited to a meeting to deliberate on the constitution of the Council. The details of the meeting are: -
Date: Saturday 18 May, 2013
Time: 2:00 – 4:00pm
Venue: Anglican Parish in Fendalton, St Barnabas at 8 Tui Street,
on the corners of Fendalton Road and Tui Street, Fendalton.
We recognise the diversity of the existing African community in the form of associations, religious groups, cultural groups, academic circles and people in their individual capacities. We hope to tap into your wealth of experience as we strategize on your ideas, and how we can move the agenda of Canterbury’s African Council forward.
See you then, please bring a friend!
