Africa Societies

Welcome to the ASAI Africa Societies.  Africa societies are at the heart of ASAI as a student and alumni association. ASAI came up and rolled out the idea of Africa societies in Irish colleges to serve as grassroots branches of the ASAI.
Since setting up the first Africa society in Dublin Business School in 2011 the number of Africa society grew exponentially. Currently there are 16 Africa societies which include some of old societies such as the Trinity College Africa society which took the name Africa society in April, 2015.

Here is the list of ASAI Africa societies:

  • Dublin Business school

Aims and objective of Africa societies:

  • To be a focal point of all students and staff from Ireland and different parts of the world to experience and celebrate African rich cultural heritage (Music, Dance, Food, Literature, Film and Art, etc.) throughout the college calendar.
  • To be focal point of African students to associate with other students in college and share the richness of Africa culture, history and geography.

The department assists African and non-African students to set up Africa societies within their institution and aid them in carrying out their various programs. The department also serves as the network centre for all African societies, coordinating the societies for major joint events.
