The African Empowerment Centre (AEC).
The African Empowerment Centre (AEC) is a NON- Governmental, NON- Political And NON- Religious organization, which was established in Stockholm Sweden, by a group of young people who have strong passion for immigrants and youths. It was founded in 2008 as the Nigerian Information Centre. We realized soon a broader interest for our organization and respond to it with the name “African Empowerment Centre” since 2010. The organization works primarily to foster closer cooperation and better understanding among young people. It offers a place for encounter and cooperation of NGOs, communities and organizations working on integration between all citizens regardless of ethnic background, religion, physical or mental disability, sex, age or sexual orientation. .
What we strive for!Our main aim is to empower the youth and to help in addressing the growing needs of young immigrant, youth training and Information Centre for newcomers. The association’s work is anchored in these key concepts: Integration, democracy & culture, development, education and information. We search the creation of arenas as well as engagement in a constant developing dialogue and reasoning. The African Empowerment Centre concentrates in its work on: Information and advocacy, Education on Cultural diversity, Human rights and Social responsibility. Our work will be based on long-term partnership with NGOs, local and national governments that share the same aspirations and views in our projects. We work together through mobilization of information, education, and cultural and social activities. .
