Job Training for Ex-combatants in Colombia

September 1 – Medellín, Colombia - PASO Colombia made an agreement with the University of Antioquia to hire 5 practitioners, in the fields political sciences and social work, that will support the training of ex-combatants in job skills with a gender-sensitive perspective. They will live in the municipalities surrounding three reincorporation zones in Antioquia and Córdoba.

Besides their direct support to the ex-combatants the practitioners will work with children of the region to conform a council that participates in the elaboration of the Development Program with Territorial Approach (PDET) of the region. They will also work with women to empower them to participate in the decisions that affect their lives in the current peace building activities happening around the reincorporation process.
