Mr. Davis Asare is running for City Council in Worcester’s 3rd district. He is a graduate of Bartlett High School in Webster, MA then went on to higher education at the Wentworth Techology where he received his degree in Electrical Engineering with a Minor in Applied Mathematics. Since graduating from college Mr. Asare has opened two companies “A Plus Services” and “Asare Engineering” while currently holding a position at Aircuity as a Consultant. Mr. Asare has also been very active in his community from a young age, volunteering his time at the Boys and Gilrs Club of Webster-Dudley. He has also volunteered with ACE mentoring, Our Bright Future, the Mathcounts Foundations, FC Napoli, and is currently a member of the Citizen Advisory Council for the city of Worcester. Mr. Asare and his high school sweetheart, Stephanie live in Worcester with their two children Aniyah and Ayden.
Proposed ideas focused on forming valuable connections between the African Diaspora communities in Boston and Worcester, supporting businesses and showcasing different events and ventures that the members of both communities are involved in.
Both AiB and Mr. Asare will be participating in the 8th Annual Health Cup (AHC) scheduled to occur on Saturday July 15th 2017 at the Cawley Stadium, 587 Douglas Road in Lowell in Lowell, Massachusetts. The first games will commence promptly at 9am and will continue until 8pm. The event is organized by the Multicultural AIDS Coalition (MAC), a non-profit organization founded in 1989 that aims to mobilize communities of color to end HIV. The African Health Cup, an annual soccer tournament is one of the MAC’s most successful social initiatives in recent years.
At the African Health Cup this year, AiB is partnering with MAC to ensure the success of the event. Through generating public interest, AiB will be present to support the success of the event, and engage with community members, creating buy-in for the impactful work that both organizations are engaged in.
Mr. Asare will also be in attendance, interacting with the community, and backing the admirable agenda of eliminating HIV.
Both Mr. Davis Asare and Africans in Boston are committed to working together in the long term on educational initiatives in Boston, Worcester and their neighboring municipalities, as well exploring new avenues for partnerships.
