Peacekeeping requires a long breath. Through many years of experience in Colombia, we contribute to the peaceful coexistence between peasants and the Indigenous in the South of the country. Our sustainable help allows countless people and their families to live a dignified life in peace.
For more than 15 years, Hilfswerk International has been providing assistance in Colombia. We support families, children and women in the South of the country on their way to a better future through the long-term security of peace. The exchange of knowledge and experience between farmers and the indigenous population is a key element in achieving this goal.
Hilfswerk International cooperates closely with the Colombian population in the project region of Guaviare. Our goal is that the different populations - peasants and indigenous peoples - live peacefully in Colombia and learn from each other. A co-operation is particularly important because in our project region alone, five different indigenous groups live alongside and with peasants whose lifestyles could hardly be more different.
Our assistance in Colombia covers various areas, each of them with the aim to ensure peace in long term.
