Bridging two realities as diverse as alike, Con Baraka is a Spanish-Egyptian organisation that helps individuals and entities integrate personal growth with social change. In an interview with Barakabits, they share their objectives and their work.
What is Con Baraka’s goal?
We offer Life Coaching sessions and International Development Consulting services primarily through training and publications. Our goal is to make this a better world through integral human development at both the individual and community levels, with justice and solidarity being the keys to achieve this.
How do you combine the work in Egypt and Spain?
In Spain, there are many organizations commissioned to work in Egypt but still don’t have the connections necessary to begin their work. We work on connecting them with the realities on the ground. We do this through a vast network of enthusiastic committed people who are experts in the areas that we offer.
What do you feel these 2 countries have in common?
Aside from sharing the Mediterranean, common foods and traditions as well as Arabic words, we at Baraka believe the common points are plentiful. We target our services for people and companies with similar needs here and there: people who desire to achieve their goals to promote social change. From our perspective, there is a need for creating alternatives with a positive social impact where the person is at the centre.
