AAN is the lucky recipient of a Harmony Day grant from Canterbury /Bankstown Council. On Thursday 20th March, AAN Treasurer Jill Sergeant accepted the $2,000 cheque, which will go towards two AAN events later this year.
The first event will be an information session for workers in the Canterbury / Bankstown areas promoting awareness of the AAN and mixed heritage family issues, as well as a consultation to inform the activities of the AAN.
The second event will be a family-friendly party for mixed Australian-African families and couples that also welcomes the participation of all Australians. The party will combine African cultural entertainment and food with information about AAN and other servces, as well as consultation with our communities.
