afikra's values & Work
At afikra, we are committed to the idea of making our work free and open to all. For us, removing as many barriers to access is essential to build a diverse and vibrant community and to cultivate intellectual curiosity in ourselves and each other.
Over the last four years, afikra's community has grown tremendously. We now have seven chapters all around the world, with many more to come very soon. We have coached over 100 speakers who have delivered brand new presentations to thousands of people in attendance and many more thousands who have streamed the events online. In order to keep delivering quality coaching, content, and community building we need your help.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
While our work relies on the efforts of dozens of volunteers who give their time and ingenuity, we do have expenses that go to ensuring that our volunteers are supported, that the quality of presentations is held to a high standard, and that our presentations can reach as many community members as possible.
Every contribution to afikra will help sustain free knowledge through our events, our online archive, and other afikra media. Your contributions go towards the technology that helps us operate and capture all of our events making them accessible online; our efforts to support our local chapters and speakers globally; and all efforts to improve the quality of our communal online archive of past presentations . Your donations support this work, and so much more.
With your help, we at afikra will continue to pursue our mission of cultivating curiosity in Arab history and culture while operating by our core values of keeping afikra free and open to all for our community today, and tomorrow.
