A Distinct Identity: Our History

African Village was founded by the organizers of the African Village at the World of Nations Celebration in Jacksonville, Florida. After more than 20 years of collaborative effort, AVI was created to take their exploration of culture and community empowerment to the next level.


Here at African Village International, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. Our decision-making process is informed by comprehensive empirical studies and high-quality data evaluation. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits.
