The House of Africa : a mainstay of Afro-Luxembourg integration !

 

 

Luxembourg is a land of welcome for the various communities, among which, people from the African diaspora. For these women and men to speak with one voice, it was necessary to gather them together into the same entity. The Maison d'Afrique Luxembourg. The motives of this creation was the search for smooth integration in our host country. The Maison d'Afrique is a non-profit organization authorized by the EIF (European Integration Fund for third countries), O.L.A.I. (Luxembourg Office for Integration and Reception), M.N.E. (Ministry of National Education and Vocational Training). The maison d Afrique is a non profit organisation seeking to :

  • Fight against poverty and root people out of the vicious circle it creates, through mutual aïd initiatives for the creation of micro entreprises and the training of vulnerable populations.
  • Implementation of a support network to development through micro-finance institutions.
  • The learning of the Luxembourg language.

The values we defend put a premium on human dignity.

 

The Maison d'Afrique Luxembourg is a space where :

  • Social ties are creator where everyone can share its culture in the diversity of opinions or origins in a " live together" approach.

Afropilitan heritage

 

  • The Maison d'Afrique Luxembourg contributes to the emergence of a new approach in an inclusive world for the valorization of a society where racial inequality is no longer an impediment, it has no place in political and social concurrence, in the new citizen's contest.
  • It involves itself in the political and intellectual world for the emergence of a new pan African collective consciousness which bourgeons more and more on the international and local area in an innovative, structuring, spurring and anti-racist and open way.
