The Objective of
MMK - MFANTSE MBOA KUW, SYDNEY
One of the key objectives of this site is to reach out to Fantes in Diaspora to cross-fertilise ideas to preserve our rich cultural heritage including the language itself. It is envisaged that unless the trend is reversed, Fante, our prestigious dialect of Akan shall have become extinct after 2 generations from now.
Most Fantes in Diaspora hardly speak the language to their offsprings. One remedial action is learning, reading and listening to Fante-based literature. A big help in this regard is the now freely circulating translation of the Biblical New Testament in Fante, courtesy of Faith Comes By Hearing Ministries in New Mexico, USA.
To strive and create a future full of hope and happiness and one that ensures respect, fair-go and provides a voice for our members.
To nurture and protect the social well-being of members and their families and together, advance the cause of peaceful co-existence with all other communities in NSW.
INITIATIVE: “We walk the talk”
– we do what we say;
TEAM WORK: We love to work together;
INTEGRITY: We are honest and ethically principled;
SERVICE : we serve our members and wherever a need arises that we can assist.
The “MBOA” in the community’s name simply means “help or assistance” while “KUW” is “society, group or association.” Abiding truly by its name, MMK Sydney rallies to provide assistance to its members in times of joy and need. The group reaches out to the larger Aussie community among others things, showcasing rich multi-cultural diversity via performances at various cultural festivals.
