Comunidades CaPAZes

A Peacemaking Project by Paula P.

What is the injustice we are solving?

Comunidades CaPAZes is a medium-term project that aims to educate for peace in disadvantage and violent communities in Bogota, Colombia. In this project we provide a 3 year program to teach tools to address the following topics : 1) Human Rights, 2) Conflict Management/Bullying and 3) Leadership and civic participation. Through practical and playful activities, and 3 transversal projects, participants start changing their behavior and become positive leaders in their communities. This projects aims to 7 to 17 years olds. This programs finally connects with a new project called LifeProject, were the Comunidades CaPAZes participants can engage in programs that involves technical skills, preparing them to labor life, such as music, coding, among others.
