This site was created for you. An organisation for all Africans living in New Zealand. A place where information is shared. A forum for ensuring mental sustenance for future generations. The link between Africa and New Zealand. Our home away from home. ACOFI will only become what we want it to be when we all pull together with that African spirit that we are well known for. Let’s be enlightened and participate in New Zealand life. This is our home now. Let us teach our children about their origins so that they have roots and they can grow strong. Let us allow our children to learn about the New Zealand way of life so that they can have wings to fly and excel in life.
OUT AND ABOUT IN THE COMMUNITY
To start the project ACOFI, NZ Police and RASNZ are hosting an Information Evening on the 27 June 2014 in Auckland for parents, key community leaders and all persons who are interested in joining the NZ Police. The purpose of this information evening will be to educate the attendees as to who police are looking to recruit and to get their support to hold a larger recruitment seminar (later this year).
Please feel free to invite family, friends and anyone who might be interested to learn about career opportunities within the NZ Police.
Each year, the African Communities Forum Inc (ACOFI) hosts Auckland Africa Day (a free event) to foster partnership between diverse African communities, NGOs, the broader New Zealand and the international communities. May 25th, 2014 marks the 51st anniversary of Africa Day.
Auckland Africa Day 2014 theme is: PROMOTING EXCELLENCE THROUGH DIVERSITY.
Africa Day provides an opportunity to acknowledge the achievements of the peoples and governments of Africa. In 2013, the 50th anniversary of the founding of the African Union was celebrated around the world.
