Jarit (Spain)

Jarit (friend in Wolof, senegalese language) is a civil and no profit association founded in 1996 and based in Ruzafa, a multicultural area in Valencia with a high presence of immigrants.


The mission of the organization is to spread and raise awareness among citizens by promoting intercultural values and fostering solidarity, respect and pacific coexistence among different cultures. Besides that, it promotes global and active citizenships through social participation, development education and community development and by working on creating synergy among Southern and Northern countries.

Jarit is a “mixed” association where immigrants and local people work hand in hand to break down discrimination, racism and to change multicultural society into intercultural.
