Collaboration Afrofemkoop Collaboration Afrofemkoop
AfroFemKoop is a project, a social and solidarity initiative.
An Afro Feminist social organisation with residing in Barcelona.
We share with this group of women many ethical values and principles.
The collective was created as an association with the purpose of becoming a cooperative with social undertaking.
A non-profit cooperative that aims to care for people in which the benefits are not distributed, but reinvested in the activity itself.
First and foremost, it is about self-organisation done by and for the
community, they represent as women of color, following in the footsteps of resistance as a historical tradition for survival and mutual support.
This multidisciplinary team is building from alliances confiding in each other, working from a set of skills, sustaining themselves while collectivizing their gifts, talents and professional aptitudes to grow and evolve together.
Another important value they stand for, is the eradication of hierarchies of power that make voiceless bodies invisible and feeds internal and intra-community struggles.
This organisation manages itself autonomously as we do in Afronomadness, from its experience in various fields, its resources, materials and activities.
AfroFemkoop values are
· SORORITY ·
· COMMUNITY ·
· EQUITY ·
· MUTUAL SELF-HELP ·
· INTERSECTIONALITY ·
· ANTI-RACISM ·
· CULTURAL AWARENESS ·
· ASELF-MANAGEMENT ·
· SOLIDARITY ·
We associate ourselves with their example of an innovative impulse based on horizontality, collective decision-making, organisational self-management in addition to Afro Feminist practice.
Their approach is a similar one to ours with a strong willingness aimed to support children, youth and women of African descent. Focusing on educational and cultural progress, as well as in support of professional development. Applying the method to individual growth, to strengthen collective health, as well as the whole of their community.
