We want to reach all African embassies, all who are interested in “VAS Austria”, all who are interested in a better future for Africa and all who are interested in “cooperation”.
This is what we want to achieve with African cuisine, fashion shows, Kora music and Dj’s.
Through these activities, the social Terms Security, the conditions and the economic realities of african Students inside are presented.
