Mission Statement

AIFE is committed to empowering individuals, organizations and businesses particularly of African immigrants and those who work with them whenever and wherever possible guided by its vision of equal opportunities for all.

Description

AIFE was incorporated by the state of Iowa on October 30, 2014. AIFE worked with the American Red Cross of Greater Iowa, the Iowa Department of Public Health, the University of Northern Iowa, and other partners to respond to the outbreak donating $1,930.91 in cash to the International Services of the Red Cross not only to respond to eliminating Ebola but addressing other humanitarian needs. The focus of AIFE would not just be responding to crisis but also empowering people and promoting the African heritage, thus its incorporation on October 30, 2014 with much broader focus to work with individuals, institutions, local, state, and if needed federal authorities in establishing accurate data and information for African immigrants as much as possible relative to population, gender, language, and other as may be necessary, to promote the African culture through activities and events organized periodically, to promote integration of African immigrants into their host communities. To work with individuals, institutions, businesses, local, state, and federal authorities as needed to assist them meet their goals as much as possible, and to strongly advocate equal opportunities for all in the areas of education, business, work, talents, play, housing, health, wellbeing, law, and other areas as may be needed. AIFE is run by its five-member board of directors and seven advisory board members.
