WHO WE ARE!

We are migrants and refugees who faced the hardships of being in an unfamiliar culture and language.

We are a collective of Arabic Speakers who are diverse in experience, skills, backgrounds, and cultures

MISSION

Working towards an intercultural Collective Identity through building bridges between migrants and locals, promoting active citizenship, initiative, and community, and address barriers to effective integration and inclusion.

VALUES

GENDER EQUALITY

Because women are key to peace and community. We cannot truly integrate until we are free from the shackles of patriarchy. And equality in any context has to start with Gender Equality!

COMMUNITY

Because we have to come together and support each other through the journey

INTERCULTURALITY

The acceptance of cultural differences is important for both integration and inclusion

RESILIENCE

Resilience is a survival skill that we all need as migrants in our new life. 

TOLERANCE

Tolerance is the acceptance of one another and connecting as human beings.

VISION

Kudwa means Role-model

Our vision is to create role-models who will inspire themselves and others to be active and contributing members of their new diverse communities.
