We announced the event on all social media platforms. We also were lucky to have some support from UNHCR Spain in the dissemination, as well as other members of Kudwa Community. The event was aimed at Arabic Speaking people living in Barcelona and surrounding areas. Particularly new members who do not know Kudwa already.
30 People attended and we believe that the event had reached the right type of people
"You made me relive sweet memories and it was really a very special day for me"
was one of the comments received. Satisfaction was high and all the attendees
Another comment was
"The activity had a great positive dimension and helped to achieve social relations between the participants and to get to know the residents of the Arab communities in the city. Thank you for your efforts and we hope that there will be other activities/events in the future."
One of the highlights was when one of our participants in MiGROW project shared her experience and how she found herself in a great community where she is seen and supported.
We are hoping to offer more opportunities like this in the near future to all our community members.
According to all the comments we received, and the conversations we had at the event, everyone was satisfied with the event. The agenda was not too restricting and people had enough time to network and get to know each other. We learned that the community needs regular events such as this one. Dedicated just to creating and growing the community. It was beneficial for our team to renew our faith in what we are doing and the need for it.
