About Us

Our Story:

Our journey began with the union of African students, planting the seed for the inception of our center. Formally registered in 1999, our center became active by 2001. Rooted in the collective spirit of Slovenia’s African diaspora, our center stands as a representative force, actively involved in vital matters concerning community integration and support within Slovenia. Our central mission extends to nurturing and strengthening relations between Africa and Slovenia, providing pathways for the introduction of African culture, fostering business opportunities, and championing collaborative initiatives.

From cultural showcases to educational workshops, engaging events, and community initiatives, we provide a platform for expression, learning, and collaboration. Through these endeavors, we aim to promote cross-cultural understanding, facilitate integration, and amplify the voices of our community.

Our Mission

Our mission at the African Center is to empower Slovenia’s African community through integration support, legal assistance, and advocacy for fair immigration policies. We foster a welcoming society, offering language classes, job training, and cultural events for cross-cultural understanding. We provide legal guidance, ensuring rights are understood, and advocate for inclusive policies that celebrate diversity. Our goal is to create an inclusive environment where every individual thrives and contributes to Slovenia’s vibrant cultural fabric and economy.

Our Vision

The African Center envisions Slovenia as an inclusive and nurturing environment where the African community thrives, contributes significantly to the country’s cultural and economic fabric, and fosters a sense of belonging. Our vision centers on championing fair immigration policies that foster understanding, cooperation, and successful integration within the broader community. We aim to be the foremost advocate for equitable access to essential services while educating and empowering the African community about their rights and responsibilities. At the heart of our mission lies a dedication to providing ongoing legal support, positively impacting lives, and contributing to a brighter collective future.
