A DIASPORA

ORGANISATION

According to the Swiss Federal Migration Office, there were over 61,000 Africans living in Switzerland in 2013, from more than 50 nationalities of origin, speaking several languages including English, French, Portuguese, Spanish and Arabic, in addition to indigenious African languages like Hausa, Swahili, Bambara, Wollof etc, Africans number 60,658 - slightly less than 3.5% of the foreign resident population. The most heavily-represented countries are Eritrea (8,377), Morocco (7,270), Tunisia (6,489), Democratic Republic of Congo (4,707) and Cameroon (4,068).

Swiss African forum was found in 2003 as an umbrella organisation for the interest of African living in Switzerland.

Aims and Objectives

Our project is driven by the challenge that beyond statements and symbolic gestures, the strongest assurance today would be a dramatic reversal, which would replace the continuing alienation and distancing people from Africa by establishing actual understanding of ideas, institutions and initiatives at all possible levels between the elements of culture, ideas and social classes of people.
