    Africa Night 2016

    Africa Night 2016 is roaring into life Saturday 26th March 2016, at the Saint Marys University. Africa Night is about celebrating Africa and its myriad of cultures through dance, music and enjoying the best of African cuisine. This year’s Africa Night is promising to be the most elegant and it will draw not only people of African decent but also the cosmopolitan population of Saint Mary’s University, Halifax and all of Nova Scotia. Over the years Africa Night has received massive support from the generous people and businesses in Halifax and this support continues grow.
    The theme for this year is titled, “UBUNTO:ABANRU, I AM BECAUSE WE ARE” presenting all 5 regions of rich Africa culture, and embrace their African identities and heritage. This celebration of Africa is to educate the world about the diverse culture and to celebrate the end of African heritage month. For further information visit the Saint Mary’s African Society Facebook page.
    SMASS has taken on a project to drill a well in Sierra Leone for an orphanage housing children who lost their parents from Ebola. All revenue we generate this year will be channelled to this project.
    The doors will open at 5:30pm, event will begin at 6pm. Tickets are $30, SMASS members and children 12 and under 25$.

  • Giving back to mother Africa

    Saint Mary’s University’s African Students Society (SMASS) invites St. Mary’s Students to join us regardless of your culture, ethnicity or citizenship.

    Our motto this year is ‘giving back to mother Africa’. SMASS has taken on a project to drill a well in an African country for an orphanage housing children who lost their parents through Ebola. All revenue we generate this year will be channelled to the drilling of this well.

    We are looking to raise $12,000 and welcome any fundraising suggestions from current and future SMASS member.

    This project is not just about us – though our good will which will be represented timelessly through a plaque that will be installed during a ceremony at the completion of the well drilling and associated pump construction. Rather, this project is an opportunity for us, as humans of earth to help our brothers and sisters in Africa.

    We will from this year on, have the pleasure of knowing that s plaque on a well somewhere in Africa states “this well was donated by SMASS in June 2015”. We hope this experience brings added value as part f your educational journey while you are a student at Saint Mary’s University and we hope it will be the start of many similar projects in future.

    Please join us as we launch the fundraising for this humanitarian cause.
