4y ago


Ribbon of Africa celebrates ALL Africans on Africa Day! Africa Day is the annual commemoration on May 25 of the 1963 founding of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU). The name and date of Africa Day has been retained as a celebration of African unity. On this day we embrace the great achievements Africans around the world, whilst not forgetting those less fortunate ie. those whose lives are touched by war, poverty and disease. Thank you to our gorgeous interviewees for helping to share the love. They all live in Australia, and are doing AMAZING things to support, encourage and inspire the African community.
