Esther’s Business Success Story
Minnesota Africans United (MAU) is a 501(C) 3 nonprofit coalition of individuals, businesses, and organizations in Minnesota. Founded in 2017, MAU is the first and only organization in Minnesota to bring together immigrants and their needs and aspirations associated with entrepreneurialism, business ownership, and cultural association and preservation across 55 African countries represented in Minnesota. The organization has representation from every country on the continent of Africa.
MAU’s approach to transforming the economic and social landscape for African immigrants in Minnesota is uniquely multi-faceted. MAU helps immigrants join the middle class and integrate into American society.
The organization helps African immigrants in Minnesota learn the English language and surmount cultural barriers. We achieve our many goals by using a committee structure, by involving MAU member organization representatives in the planning and execution of MAU programs, in the areas of housing, workforce development, business development, technology, agriculture, education, civic engagement, trade & foreign affairs, healthcare, and unity & tradition.
The mission of MAU is to create awareness and build individual capacity within the immigrant population related to the resources and opportunities available to them. MAU’s outcomes close the economic, educational, and social, and emotional opportunity gaps which have persisted in Minnesota.
