WeAfric is a UK registered company with a dedication to unlocking the potential of the African Diaspora. Our platform fosters collaboration, provides resources for collective action, and aims to build a more cohesive and prosperous community.
As members of the vibrant and resilient African diaspora, they were tired of sitting idly in the passenger seat, lamenting their circumstances and waiting for change to come. They yearned for a way to take the wheel and steer their own path towards progress and empowerment. Thus, coming together to form a WhatsApp group, igniting a flame that sparked a journey towards creating a brighter future.
In 2020, they founded WeAfric, an integrated social networking platform designed to pave the way for the next generation of African diaspora children. The platform will help to unlock the community's potential, exchanges knowledge, and drives economic impact. With WeAfric, you'll have access to visionary opportunities that celebrate your heritage, inspire personal growth, and ignite collective action.
