“Africa is not just a place. It is a feeling! Africa is the heart of the world and there are only a few of us who have been touched by her. Africa defines our soul and people can feel it, people just know…”
Discover Africa Academy
This is one of AAN Educational programs that concentrate in teaching the students about Africa, African people and their culture. Students learn subjects like African History, African Art, African Music and Dance, Wonders of Africa, African Folktales and stories and African Languages. The Academy offers Summer classes, winter classes and After School Activities to schools from Kindergarten to High School. These classes are currently available for students in Beijing and are being offered in different international schools with the hope of expanding to other cities. Attendees will get a chance to visit Africa.
African Speech Night Contest
An event created to encourage African youth based in China to be proud of their countries hence teaching the world about their countries and cultures in a competitive way. There is a huge stereotype that people have about Africa hence we would like to show them the true and good side of Africa that people / media never tell or show. For this competition students are given 3 minutes to market their countries such that after the 3 minutes the audience will know where in Africa their country is and what they can find there. The students with best presentations win. Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul, it is easier to overcome the economic and political barriers. But first they have to understand that their neighbour is, in the end, just like them, with the same problems, the questions.

To help schools have libraries and equip the schools with the latest technology. AANEDU will also offer scholarships to students and enable them to go on exchange programmes abroad. One major goal is also to make sure all schools are linked to the internet and will offer free classes on how to use computers to access educational materials online.
