The Harambee Centre connects the people of the Pacific
Northwest with the people and cultures of Africa. Harambee
means "Let's pull together" in Kiswahili; our
logo is the Ashanti adinkra for strength. The mission
of the Harambee Centre is to pull people together for
the good of the global community. We believe that multicultural
education and intercultural exchange are essential to
building genuine understanding, respect and enduring
relationships among diverse peoples.
As members of the global community, we are committed
to sharing both material and cultural wealth. The Harambee
Centre's goals are threefold: to inform, educate, and
enlighten people of our community about the cultures
and realities of the vast and varied societies of Africa;
to build bonds of understanding, respect, and mutually
beneficial relationships between people in the Pacific
Northwest and people in Africa; and to support self-help
projects in African communities by generating funds from
resources in our communities. We value collaboration
and work to coordinate activities with other groups that
share and/or complement our mission. We promote diversity
and welcome broad participation in our programs.
The Harambee Center is an Oregon not for profit organization
and received its 501(c)(3) tax status in August 2001.
