African Achievers Awards- Birmingham

African Achievers Awards is an innovative project by CAASSUK ( http://http//www.caassuk.org/events/) This award recognises successful and confident Africans who unselfishly invest their time and talents toward building a stronger community.

CAASSUK is a charity that provides free information, advice and guidance (education, employment, health, benefit, housing, citizenship and support) to enhance productivity and quality of the life of the poor. It also provides Employment, Employability and skills training (Work experience perfect CV, job search, finding placement, vacancies) 

FabAfriq caught up with Fred Ebot, CEO and project manager for the African Achievers Awards  and he emphasised the need for the community to organise  recognition awards, where those who have worked hard within their communities, are recognised by the community and awarded for their contributions.

Frederick, has also published a report, detailing the journey of African to Birmingham in particular. This will be exhibited on the night of the event. This exhibition offers an insight into the experience of African migrants in Birmingham since 1950. In the sixty years since 1950 Birmingham has changed beyond all recognition physically, economically, socially and culturally. Migration from Africa has played an important role in these changes and this exhibition offers an insight into the experiences and contributions of African migrants in Birmingham during this period.
