Who we are

The African Communities Council Wellington (ACCW) is a group of African nationals and supporters who have come together to be the united voice of Wellington’s African communities.

What we do

Our goal is to promote African culture and heritage to our fellow New Zealanders. ACCW encourages multiculturalism and ethnic diversity. We achieve this by including participation from all ethnic African communities living in New Zealand. Check out details of our upcoming celebrations: Africa Day, Wellington, 2013

Who we work with

We work alongside Africans of all ethnicities and New Zealanders to promote, integrate and educate each other on African cultures and values. In return, this helps Africans adapt and integrate into the Kiwi lifestyle.


The African Communities Council Wellington is a not-for-profit organisation so we rely on the work of our volunteers and the goodwill and generosity of the wider community and organisations supporting us. Read about our sponsors and supporters: Our supporters
