A violent civil war involving guerrilla groups like FARC and ELN, private armed groups, drug cartels and government forces left many thousands of people dead and over five million forced to flee their land. Despite the recent peace agreements, poverty and displacement continue to be huge problems in some parts of the country.

We’re helping indigenous people to preserve their land rights, protect their land from destruction and contamination and to protect themselves from threats from illegal mining operations. We’re helping communities who were forced to flee their homes to stand up for their rights and reclaim legal access to their land. We also provide seeds, tools, livestock and training to marginalized people, such as those from Embera, Afro-Colombian and campesino communities, so they can grow more food and support themselves.
