Our strategy

Help displaced families, landmine victims, former child soldiers and other victims of Colombia’s armed conflict get the assistance and skills they need to rebuild their lives.

The context

Fighting among left-wing guerrillas, right-wing paramilitaries, drug traffickers and the army has created the largest population of internally displaced people outside Sudan — at least four million and growing.

Our work

  • Children & Youth: Helping newly demobilized child soldiers reintegrate into society and preventing at-risk children from being recruited into armed groups
  • Emergency response: Providing families displaced by conflict and flooding with emergency assistance and income-generation skills
  • Conflict & Governance: Helping communities peacefully resolve existing land conflicts and formalize land ownership
