Who we are
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, Culture and Events, and Communications.
Afros Unidos is a global group of Afro descendants who seek to improve the quality of life of our communities so that they achieve sustainable autonomy; focusing its actions on five kuagros. Ethno-education, Economic Empowerment, Community Service, Culture and Events, and Communications.
Every and anyone can be a change agent. What role will you play?

AfrosUnidos will be a leading organization in advocacy, development and autonomy of Afro-descendant communities. The work of AfrosUnidos will allow the formation of an international network of collaborators who will jointly carry out actions that will lead to the strenghtening, growth, and empowerment of the Afro people.
