The Association for the Advancement of Africa is a U.S.-based, non-profit 501(c)(3), nonpartisan organization. The organization was created in January 2000 by Dr. Sunday-Joseph Otengho, a Ugandan who lived under Idi Amin's regime and who sought political asylum in the United States in January 1981. It is the intent of this organization to help first-generation Africans assimilate into American society while aiming at strengthening and enhancing the fundamental relationship between Africans of the Diaspora and Africa.
The Association seeks to develop programs and affiliations with local, national, and international universities to further an understanding of African culture, issues, and processes, while providing information to African immigrants concerning education, economics, health, culture, science and technology, immigration, women's issues, and bilateral relationships, all with the goal of the unification of Africa. The mission of this Association is to mobilize Africans of the Diaspora, Africans in Africa, and all friends of Africa to address the cultural, economic, educational, civic, immigration, health, scientific, and social needs of African societies, domestic and international.
