African Australian (A2) was founded and established in 2008 by responsible African Australian citizens.
We are a proud and caring community that celebrates our heritage, and our diversity while using a sensitive and energetic approach in shaping our future. We value integrity, working together, continuous improvement, and a culture of success.
We are proactive and inclusive in our corporate activities as we strive to continually enhance the well being of the community, and its organizations through our leadership and actions in support of social, economic and personal development.
Our aim and commitment is for a prosperous African Australian community, characterized by proactive co-operation and respect among its people who all enjoy the benefits of economic, social, cultural, and personal development, a unique environment and a healthy lifestyle.
We provide an umbrella of hope and help by tackling tough community issues through inclusive collaborations focused on a shared vision for a better and brighter Australia.
We will accomplish our vision through our commitment to strategic growth, and community engagement, providing a supportive and positive service in which every member has the opportunity to develop communication and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth.
Our Purpose is to provide services that help enterprises grow, communities prosper and individuals realize their full potential
Developmental Mindset and Empowering Culture must be given priority, the effective transformation of the mindset and culture to promote attitudes of self development, community development, confidence and commitment to face development challenges and exploit every opportunity for the improvement of the quality of livelihood is of prime importance. The effective ownership of the development agenda coupled with the spirit of self-reliance, at all societal levels, are major driving forces for the realization of the Vision. African Australians should learn to appreciate and honor hard work, creativity, professionalism and entrepreneurship and strive to develop a prosperous Australia
The key elements of this developmental mindset and empowering culture are the following:
I. Development oriented culture of hard work and creativity
A progressive and development oriented culture needs to be involved to link the people's way of life to the attainment of the goals of the development vision with particular regard to cultivating and nurturing a culture of entrepreneurship and self-development through creative and innovative hard work, responsibility, discipline, respect for life, education, and fostering self confidence and self esteem among individuals.
II. Developmental community spirit
A positive community spirit well balanced with individual initiative in the promotion and management of socio-economic development activities and in other national affairs, at all levels of society, should be developed by inculcating a culture of sharing of ideas and facilities within communities and between communities as one way of pooling resources for the good of all.
III. Broad human development strategy
There is need to promote a broad human development strategy which involves a wide range of bodies which embraces individuals, families, communities, agencies and corporate bodies.
IV. Incentive system to reward such attributes as excellence, creativity, innovation
Encourage and reward individuals, groups and firms to embrace initiative, creativity, innovativeness and excellence. This transformation must be reflected in the education system, training institutions, recruitment, sport, and in business culture.
V. Education as a strategic change agent
Education should be treated as a strategic agent for mindset transformation and for the creation of a well educated community, sufficiently equipped with the knowledge needed to competently and competitively solve the development challenges which face the community. In this light, the education department will focus on education programs to promote creativity and problem solving in a supportive and positive environment in which every member has the opportunity to develop communication and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth.
VI. Individual development and success
Some African Australian individuals have tremendous talent that is agonizingly wasted. It is absolutely vital that we identify, guide and develop our talents. Programs, activities and projects will be implemented to source established and potential talents in sports academics, arts, and various talent capabilities.
