Country Strategy

Colombia faces the complex task of building peace after more than 50 years of conflict. Other ongoing challenges include drug production and trafficking, the assassination of civil society leaders, and threats from armed groups. We invest in building an inclusive and sustainable peace at the community level. Our grantees promote peaceful communities, supported by strong civil society organizations and sufficient legal economic opportunities. Currently, they work in 30 of Colombia’s 32 departments.

We awarded our first grant in Colombia in 1972. Since then, we have provided $60.8 million through 400 grants to local organizations.
