Friday, September 16, 2011


Dear friends of MACPRI,

interest in the Toronto International Oware Tournament, Family Day and African Market Place is steadily growing. The Harriett Tubman Community Organization has already signed on bring 20 or more members. Visions in Green has agreed to set up the All African Inventors Museum.

I am also pleased to announce that ACHA, the African Canadian Heritage Association has offered to move their entire Saturday program to the Africentric School for this historic day. Please see message below from Louis March, ACHA Communications for more details. Other activities at the Oware Tournament Family Day include: Workshops on African martial Arts, Jewelery Making, Head Wrapping, Drumming, Storytelling...and more. There will also be performances from the children and adults and a brief and inspiring presentation by MACPRI founder on the Importance of Entrepreneurship in the Development of the African Canadian Community.

The community is encouraged to support the vendors at the event. Considered purchasing your gifts for the gift giving season at our African Market Place.

The Oware Day will be very packed, fun and exciting for all. Food and drinks will be on sale throughout the day. This is a free admission family event, where tournament participants pay to register. Donations will be accepted in support of the Africentric Alternative School.

If you can support this event in any way: funds, time you name it, Call me at 647-991-1753 or bounce me back an email.
Special thanks as always to Evans Electrical Services, our principle sponsor.

Bless You,

Brother Oji
