Celebrating and raising awareness of African culture at Western University and around London. Anyone is welcome to join our club.
The African Students’ Association (ASA) is a cultural club that celebrates and raises awareness of African culture at Western University and around the City of London. We also engage our members in socio-political forums that provide a platform to discuss issues Africans face in Canada and abroad. Another central part of our mission is to provide a home away from home for African students new to Canada, and to support them during their enculturation at Western. At the same time, we strive to hold social events that appeal to people of all races and ethnicities that have an interest or curiosity about Africa the land, the people that inhabit her, and/or the current events occurring there. Moreover, as part of our strategy, we focus on fund-raising for local charities that promote the welfare and advancement of needy and vulnerable peoples in Africa. Our vision is to create a better awareness, understanding and appreciation of Africa culture, to break down social barriers between Africans and non-Africans.
