African Pavilion Group

Africa House is the Project of the African Pavilion Group. The approach is to create a complex of buildings that will house activities and presentations related to all the countries and all the cultures of the African continent. The proposal of the layout of the Africa house was made in 2005 by Brook Teklehaimnot, chair of the architecture department of Addis Ababa university, Ethiopia. The Africa House project collaborates actively with African student groups in Tamil Nadu, arranging culture programs and work sessions on the site its self. it also wants to support the possibility for African students to come for studies and internship in Auroville. The African Pavilion Group is connected with AVI Ethiopia and with the Aurovillage project in Burkina Faso.

Tekeste Kidan came as a young African Diplomat to India in the beginning of 1966, attached to the Ethiopian Embassy in New Delhi. Through his friends and through the invitation received by his Embassy to participate in the Auroville foundation ceremony in 1968, he became aware of Auroville and came to its first Anniversary celebration. Tekeste has served as an Ethiopian Diplomat from November 1959 up to August 1993. After his retirement in that year, he served for five years in Ethiopia as a social worker and is living in Auroville since 1999, where his strong will and push to get his continent more integrated in the city is widely appreciated.
