It contributes to the strengthening of their identity and culture by appreciating the historical contribution, and supporting their struggle for the acknowledgement of their rights.

It is not working at present, but it has been a very important reference for the afro Ecuadorian people, above all for its organizations, since many of the leaders were trained in this centre.
