Our local programs are designed to:

  • Provide cultural adjustment and skill enhancement training to African immigrants in the Washington DC metropolitan areas
  • Implement knowledge transfer initiatives from the African Diaspora
  • Mobilize resources and create partnerships locally and abroad to strengthen and build the capacity of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and community based organizations (CBOs)
So far, we have conducted some workshops and had many interested African immigrants who took advantage of our workshop. 


Assist African immigrants in the United States by:-

  • Providing cultural adjustment workshops.
  • Providing capacity building and skill enhancement training.
  • Helping African immigrants with pertinent information and provide referral services.
  • Initiating synergistic partnerships with other nonprofit organizations to optimize resources.


VoA conducted frequent workshops and had numerous-interested African immigrants who diligently attended the:-

  • Cultural Adjustment Workshop
  • Capacity Building and Skill Enhancement Workshop
  • Participatory Needs Assessment Workshop

Our workshops are effective vehicles in sharing individual experiences that could be further disseminated among the rest of the community.

As one participant said, "I wish I had someone to guide me when I arrived in the United States. It would have given me a much better start. I appreciate what VoA is trying to do for African Immigrants. It is a very important service"
