I hereby wish to inform the
house that Mr. Ignatius and myself Bekake Peter did honour the
invitation by the Association "Essbare Stadt" at 6:45 pm today in
their Club or meeting house - Schönfelder strasse 41A, kassel.
were so gladly and specially welcome given the good impression their
representatives; Benjamin and Simone had during their visit at APC.
Besides the 2 of us, they were also guested by visitors from other
associations e.g. the Green Peace etc.
Their principal mission at
moment is to propagate their ideology through drawings and direct
sensitisation Campaigns of the public. In this light, they asked us if
the APC would allow them co-organise a food sales stand during the next
Tag der Erde? They will be contacting the APC exco on that and to take
the necessary steps towards getting permission from the Tag der Erdee.
The second point they will like to cooperate with
APC is medicinal plants? The lady concerned, Mrs.Simone, took our contacts
and happily looks forward to exchanging ideas and experiences with us.
Other matters: They find the African culture very interesting for
their projects and they use typical African symbols in their propagation
drawings. Their president, Benjamin will be flying to Ghana for
It was quite interesting being
with them and that they are sooo gladly willing to work with us.
APC was in Hamburg,report by Mr Kelvin Ojugo
On the 21. 10 20017,the Áfrican People's
Convection (A.P.C) sent 7 delegates which humbly attended the TOPAFRIC
7th African Youth Educational Award in Hamburg. The attendees include: Mrs Amie Ceeesay, Mr.
Balo Momodu, Mr. Ignatius Igator, Mr. Kelvin Ojugo, Mr. Goodman Service,
Mr. Simon and Mr. Awung Stephen, the President of APC. The ceremony was so amazing to see African
youths who were able to carry on their educational career and graduated
from the university despise the cost of living and language
difficulties in Germany. What amazed me was the testimony of a young
lady from Rwanda, who came to Germany alone when she was a little girl
as a refugee.Despise the difficulties she encountered, she choosed to
study while going to work to pay her house rent and her other school
needs. Her poor
Parent whom she was getting little help from died but that did not
stop her from pursuing her dream to study and she finally graduated as a
dentist. Is that not amazing? We also heard the story of a young woman
who came to Germany as a refugee from Mali but work hard to become the
first black parliamentarian in the German state of
Schlesing-Holstein.This lady holds a degree in political science
and a member of the Left party in Germany. This award
was given to African youths who exel either in their studies
or apprentership to boost up their zeal to succeed in their quest
and contribute meaningful to the society. Many motivational speeches
were given to encourage the youth like that of the Vice Ambassador of
Ghana who advised the community to respect the laws of the host country
and play a role in the development of Africa.
This event also challenges most of us, whom do think
that language is a hindrance to success; no no no no. You can, I mean
we can do more better if we really want to. APC has been assisting
African youths to integrate in the German labour market through
mentoring and educational fora organised on regular basis.
