I was so moved and inspired by the community work I was able to witness. A multi-generational and multi-national group, learning together, speaking openly and honestly of difficulties and challenges, and supporting each other through them.
The center has so many programs -- after-school tutoring, refugee assistance and community integration, mediation, and is also dedicated to sharing the rich cultures and knowledge of African community members with the rest of Lowell. Gordon is a true community member and leader -- so warm, enthusiastic, thoughtful, and tireless in his dedication. It’s a gift to know him, and to see all the African Community Center of Lowell has been able to accomplish already.
