Personally, as a newcomer, I see in Kudwa a safe environment and a professional team where I can ask all my questions and clear my confusion about many new things in this new environment.
Preparing an integrated program for social integration. The program includes psychological support sessions, opening the door to volunteering for participants in seminars to share their experiences for others and thus creating a participatory and innovative mechanism
The session was very informative, I learned many things about life in Barcelona, and I also made new friends who share the same experience. Moderators Razan and Mahmoud were extremely kind and humble, welcoming all questions and their answers are always in the core.
A series of activities to promote Cultural ِAcknowledgement. Which means:
SOCIAL ACCEPTANCE OF CULTURAL DIFFERENCES
Activate the Arab community in Barcelona to connect with the local community as ambassadors of their cultural diversity
It is the diverse community's accommodation of cultural diversity through knowledge, empathy, and tolerance towards all the cultures that are within it, old or new.
The result of cultural acknowledgment is developing shared values and trust and eventually a sense of belonging which allows migrants to participate fully as equal and active members of the community.
Interactive training sessions with diverse Arabic Speakers to combat stereotypes and prejudices and connect at the human level between the migrants and the host community
Cultural events that facilitate the connection between migrants and local community, while exploring different cultures between Arab countries through the perspectives of their citizens
Regular social activities that present the history, music, rituals, traditions, and dances of different Arabic cultures and countries, as well as the host community and its culture and rituals.
Information & Support
Providing vital information and guides in Arabic Language to breakdown language barriers and offer the best support, especially for new comers.

Selecting and boosting migrant and refugee talent across different fields and occupations and creating space for them to share their expertise with the rest of the community. Thus, introducing new paths, skills and opportunities from within the community.
