How We Started
US African Immigrants Gist started with a dream to reach out in support of African immigrants’ communities in the United States. It began by asking how can we genuinely lift each other as a people of common origin, history, struggle, and experience.
To this end, we blog, share useful tips, connect people to jobs, and continue working on economic empowerment initiatives that would support immigrants’ financial independence.
