Madison`s African community hopes to open community development center

To address the needs of Madison’s growing African population, community members are working toward opening a center dedicated to increasing access to language services, job training and immigration counseling.

Aliko Songolo, a University of Wisconsin-Madison professor emeritus, said the African community here has been growing by “leaps and bounds.” Immigrant communities face feelings of isolation and could benefit from a center that would ease the adjustment to Madison.
