Afro-Colombian communities of the municipality of Jamundi, located south of the city of Cali, Colombia, have expressed their willingness to collaborate with MI CASA Research Group in developing learning and training opportunities within the areas of peace building and conflict resolution. We also anticipate collaborating in grant writing to fund these initiatives.
In Colombia, our partner is FUNECOROBLES foundation, a non-profit Afro-Colombian grassroots environmental NGO. FUNECOROBLES' mission links the goals of biodiversity conservation with the empowerment of local communities through participatory planning.
