African People’s Convention (APC) is an
award winning organisation founded in 1999 and registered in 2000 in
Germany with the aim to advocate for the interest of all Africans and
people of African origin not only in Germany but across the globe. The
organisation’s motto is integration, it ensures that Africans living
in Europe, Asia, America and other parts of the world are protected
from discrimination and are integrated into the culture of the
societies where they live. It also ensures that African cultural
backgrounds are promoted and preserved.
The culture of the organisation and methods of activities play a key
role that suits all Africans. The organisation ensures that there is
protection of the rights of all Africans in the society where they
live. However, congruence between culture and structure is an
important mechanism that has helped in building this citadel.
In order to maintain the objectives of the organisation, a lot of
activities are organised quarterly. Beside cultural affairs, seminars
are organised three times a year where current problems and progresses
in Africa are discussed by distinguished arrays of intellectuals.
APC is purely philanthropic and non religious and it is open to any
African or people of African origin above the age of 18. The
international headquarters is located in Kassel, Germany. The
organisation currently has a lot of members around the world. Most of
the activities are carried out voluntarily by the members.
APC's activities were rewarded with the
Adler award 2010 as the best NGO in Europe bestowed by the African
APC Executive inauguration 2012
