The Ballarat African association (BAA) is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious, and charitable membership organisation, Lead by our president Paulo Adiang along with an experienced executive team. It is organised to provide mutual and social support to all Africans residing in Ballarat in particular and Victoria (Australia) generally. It’s an organisation for bringing people together, not only to bring African people together as one, but to help bring African people feel excepted into such a multicultural community. The BAA was formed in 2006, starting with Wilbert Mapombere as president. BAA has continued to grow over the years with a group of 500 to 600 people joining us from the Ballarat community.
