Stand for Africa Day

By: Roger Boissy- Chairman Texas West Africa COC

On Saturday, November 6, 2021, Stand for Africa, a new Houston Based nonprofit organization, a Pan-African NGO, celebrated its official launch at the Grand Tuscany hotel. The event was held in the presence of government officials, guests such as Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee and Ron Reynolds supported and attended this very memorable event and delivered a proclamation that aims to empower the Youth Through Education, sports and entrepreneurship as well as opening the Continent of Africa to organizations looking forward to optimizing their international reach.

The Mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner, delivered a proclamation to STAND FOR AFRICA making the occasion a “STAND FOR AFRICA DAY” in the city of Houston. The event was co-hosted by Jonathan Martin from Fox26 news. He was the master of ceremony with the beautiful Myriam Bahaj member of the STAND FOR Team USA Team.

High-performing athletes were involved such as Amabi Okeye former football player for the Texans as well as Boniface Ndong former NBA player for the Clippers and currently assistant coach for the Nuggets.

The event started around 4pm with opening prayers by Pastor Leroy Woodard and Imam Assane.The attendees heard the amazing speakers who delivered very important messages on how people could come together to support and empower one another and impact positively the lives of the younger generation.

The President of Stand for Africa showed his deep gratitude to his entire team and to everyone who supported the initiative. He presented the first projects of Stand for Africa such as; the 200 scholarships that the organization is giving to students in Africa so they can attend college; a container of school supplies, clothes, shoes and other products for unfortunate kids; funds for the construction of an academy where young athletes will take up residence with everything provided to them; and medical equipment to be sent to Africa in partnership with the medical bridges.

The event was a great success, very informative with some fun added to it by an African group dance, a comedian and a live band performance. One of the highlights of the day was the red carpet and the presence of 2 African TV channels that covered the entire event.
