AFRICA WEEK 2018
May 18th - 26th 2018
A series of events and activities that were held across Beijing between May 18th and May 26th to celebrate Africa and increase positive engagement with Africa in China. The theme for the inaugural Africa Week was: Ijinle - a Yoruba word, which means source/root. Through carefully curated activities we highlighted Africa as a source of rich cultures and experiences of the past, present and future.
Our initiative brought together over 650 people of diverse nationalities, ages and interests to celebrate Africa and engage with China's dynamic African community. The week long of activities culminated in a start-up competition, where a promising African Start-Up: Nani's Creations was awarded the profits from Africa Week: 30,000 RMB.
Africa Week was made possible due to their support
