Maarifa Circle App for Android and Apple devices

London, United Kingdom –Community interest company, Maarifa Circle has now launched the MaarifaHub. The MaarifaHub is an app devoted to allowing users from the African diaspora to engage, interact with and support their community.

The MaarifaHub includes a comprehensive list of UK based black businesses, with address details and turn-by-turn navigation to allow users to locate more readily their favourite African / Afro-Caribbean business.

The first of its kind in the UK, the MaarifaHub provides a single point of interaction for conscious individuals seeking to learn more about a range of subjects such as African history, the etymology of African names and resources for empowering children.

The MaarifaHub provides up to the minute news from Africa which allows users to keep up to speed with developments on the continent. The app also has a calendar stocked with a list of all the events that could be of interest to users, so you never have to miss an event again.

The MaarifaHub has a number of features that will allow users to engage more actively with Maarifa Circle, with direct access to Maarifa Circle’s social media content such as their YouTube videos, Instagram posts and their recently revamped blogging platform – Maarifa Speaks.

Maarifa Circle’s Chief Executive and founder, Nana Boa-Amponsem said “With over 10,000 Black owned businesses in London alone, the potential for the MaarifaHub to expand and support the Black community in the UK and beyond is truly exciting.”
