A PROJECT THAT EMPOWERS THE VOICE OF CULTURAL AND COMMUNICATION COLLECTIVES BUILDING PEACE IN 40 OF THE MUNICIPALITIES MOST AFFECTED BY VIOLENCE AND POVERTY IN COLOMBIA.

Voices from the Territory (Voces del Territorio) is a project implemented as part of the Final Agreement to End the Armed Conflict and Build a Stable and Lasting Peace. Its objective is to empower communities in areas most affected by poverty and armed conflict, as creators of their peace narratives, by formulating and implementing collective projects in communication, art, and culture.

The project prioritizes the participation of organizations formed by women, youth, ex-combatants, ethnic and LGBTIQ+ communities from 40 municipalities focused on the Development Programmes with a Territorial-Based Focus (PDETs by its Spanish acronym), conceived in the Final Agreement. Its primary focus is to make progress in implementing Pillar 8 of the PDETs, which corresponds to the actions agreed upon by the driving groups of each municipality to contribute to reconciliation, coexistence, and peacebuilding in their regions. 

This project is financed by the United Nations Multi-Donor Peace Sustaining Fund -MPTF- and executed in coordination between the International Organization for Migration -OIM- and Colombia in Peace Fund.
