About Afros Unidos
The purpose of the Afros Unidos Association is to carry out activities of cultural, recreational, social, educational, economic, and political relevancy that contribute to the improvement of the quality of life of Afro-Colombian communities. Headquartered in Medellin, Colombia we are an organization that seeks to connect the African diaspora around the world by building solid international alliances through pillars based primarily on education, knowledge of our history, business, community service and the promotion of culture. Inspired by the old Palenquera institution of the “kuagro”, where the Palenqueros actively participate in the political, social and cultural life of their community, Afros Unidos focuses its efforts on 5 different “kuagros,” or groups: Ethnoeducation, Economic Empowerment, Community Service,….
