REGIONS

Protection International's work in Colombia has been carried out in the following regions:

  • Cauca: Afro-Colombian communities linked to the COCOCAUCA territorial organization, working especially with the "convites"; as well as with indigenous communities that are part of the Association of Indigenous Lobbying of the North of Cauca (ACIN).
  • El Cesar region: the community of El Hatillo.
  • Vichada: in La Primavera, with the La Llanura and Pascua indigenous reservations, made up of approximately 28 communities, and the El Trompillo indigenous settlement.
  • Caquetá

In Vichada PI works in alliance with the Corporación Claretiana Norman Pérez Bello. In the other regions mentioned above, protection work is currently carried out with Pensamiento y Acción Social (PAS).

The team in Colombia also works beyond its borders, accompanying community processes and human rights organisations in Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Uruguay, among others.
