In Latin America we work in Colombia, supporting the country’s transition to peace. Despite persistent political polarisation, Colombia has seen significant developments, especially with implementation of the peace agreement, which was signed between the Government of Colombia and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) in 2016, to end over 50 years of conflict.
Our work in Colombia challenges convention, by enabling those who are often excluded from the official peace process to participate in the ongoing transition to peace. We specifically focus on women’s empowerment and support a grassroots network of indigenous women, as well as Colombian women living in the diaspora.
