Centro COMParte: training, jobs & peace in Bogota

by Fundacion Projeter Sans Frontieres Proyectar Sin Fronteras


Centro COMParte is a space designed by and for the community offering cultural and entrepreneurial integration for youth & adults in Bogota, Colombia. In the Santa Rosa neighborhood where diverse groups face the challenge of cohabitation in reduced, often inadequate spaces, our objective is to positively gather and impact the population through cultural activities, empowerment workshops and skills training that strengthen the core of their families, personal development and community.

In Santa Rosa, a neighborhood in the high areas of the San Cristobal locality, exists a clear example of a post-conflict zone in Bogota. Locals, families displaced by countryside violence and demobilized & reinserted former guerilla military groups live together in congested spaces on land at risk of landslides. Families must coexist in this social context characterized by the absence of public authorities, lack of opportunities and socio-economic divisions that restrict their development.


Centro COMParte achieves unification of the neighborhood and generates connections between institutions working in pro of personal and community development. To date, 1580 participants from all walks of life have come together in activities like computer literacy, breakdance, textile fabrication, photography, urban agriculture. Centro COMParte has launched two social enterprises creating careers for over 15 individuals, mostly women, fostering a spirit of entrepreneurship and creativity.

Long-Term Impact

We will train and engage more than 2,000 children, teens and adults in the community at the closing of our second year offering activities, classes with the goal of fostering peaceful coexistence and collaboration while reducing economic vulnerability and empowering entrepreneurs in the neighborhood. Also with the expansion of the model to build COMParte in similar neighborhoods, we will reach nearly 10,000 in the next 5 years.
