Communities in Colombia still struggle with the extraordinarily complex task of implementing the 2016 peace accords and uniting people divided by more than a half-century of armed conflict. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to enhance peace and security in Colombia. Our grantee partner, Centro de Investigación y Educación Popular (CINEP), supports grassroots organizations’ participation in peacebuilding by promoting peer-to-peer learning, strengthening the community of practice “Sistema de Iniciativas de Paz,” and training local organizations in adopting approaches to learning that can further improve their programming.
This grant is part of the IAF’s broader initiative to build a just and lasting peace in Colombia.
