Dunia Kato is a non-profit association created in 2018 with the main objective of promoting and carrying out international cooperation projects based on co-development (projects promoted by migrants), acting as links between need and resources.
The Abarka entrepreneurship project was born in 2019,promoted by the members of the association themselves, and with the intention of providing financial support to Dunia Kato. The Abarka cooperative seeks to create opportunities for migrants and / or racialized people, highlighting the richness of African cultures, through gastronomy, with the main objective of breaking stereotypes. All this with the vision of living in a diverse, intercultural and more inclusive society.

Our work is not only behind the stove. We are aware that our rights as migrants and people of color are always subject to debate, instead of being understood as inherent to the category of human rights.
That is why we firmly believe in the imperative need for awareness about our own experiences, as well as those lived by our community. Racism, colonialism, imperialism, and police brutality are some of the issues we denounce.
Likewise, and understanding the importance of networking among the community of migrants and people of color at the national and international level, Abarka always tries to collaborate with other associations, cooperatives and unions.
One time projects
1. Abarka against the virus (Spanish Edition)
Faced with the unexpected crisis of Covid-19, and the consequences derived from the lockdown, from Abarka, where gastronomy is our DNA, we decided to start a new project. With the collaboration of the Fons Cooperatiu contra l’emergència, we distributed 760 menus to people who worked on the front line against the virus, as well as to people in vulnerable situations.
