Thank you for visiting our website. The Africa Centre Ireland is an African diaspora led Non- Governmental Organisation that facilitates the integration and inclusion of African diaspora in all aspect of life in Ireland and their contribution to sustainable development on the African continent.

Our work in Ireland focusses on three main areas; 

Our community participation programme facilitates the African diaspora communities in Ireland to engage in activities aimed at social inclusion and integration through community mobilisation and participation projects.

Our development education programme facilitates the African diaspora voices informing positive narratives of Africa and Africans in Ireland and at the global level. We do this by showcasing African diaspora views on global issues and facilitating dialogue through raising awareness on African issues with our “Africa Also Smiles” educational resources and themes for discussions.

Our Africa Programme is run from our West Africa Regional Office in The Gambia facilitating African diaspora engagement in sustainable development through mentoring, partnership with government institutions, the private sector and international agencies for implementing development project aimed at job creation, investment and trade promotion, health education and prevention, agriculture and sustainable livelihoods, education and environmental protection.

All the three areas mentioned above are supported by policy dialogue and engagement with partners at African and at European countries and institutions.

Our work cannot be completed without the support of our funders and you, our supporters. Without your generous donations and support, we would not be able to achieve what we have in the past many years and thank you for being with us on this journey.

The Africa Centre Ireland look forward to more collaboration and partnership with you, making our communities more welcoming and inclusive and to create jobs reducing unemployment and improve our environment for a healthy living.
