Summary

After a field research work started in 2007, PSF opened in 2013 "Centro COMParte", which is a place conceived in order to build a model of social and economical actions in a post-conflict context in the marginalized boroughs of the South of Bogota. Centro COMParte aims at contributing to the building of a sustainable peace by the support of life's projects of an uprooted population thoughout education, culture and entrepeneurship.

Challenge

Santa Rosa, a neighborhood in the high areas of the San Cristobal locality, was struck by the violence of the armed conflict and it's a challenge for a population torn apart by this conflict to live altogether: reinserted group of militaries, formers guerilleras fighters and historical inhabitants of the borough are struggling each day to learn how to make peace and to accept one another. Furthermore, the borough is marked by the absence of public authorities that causes a lack of oportunities.

Solution

The ultimate goal of COMParte is to gather the communauty in order to help them in the peace process. To illustrate this goal, more than 1500 inhabitants of Santa Rosa with different social background attended to various activities (such as computer literacy, breakdance, textile confection, photography clases, and urban agriculture) implemented by Centro COMParte. Furthermore, we created a social brand Olingo which allow the women of Santa Rosa to work together and to consolidate social bonds.

Long-Term Impact

Since its creation, Centro COMParte has worked with more than 800 children and 250 adults offering activities, clases and opportunities around peace building and sustainable development while reducing economic vulnerability and empowering entrepeneurs in the neighborough. Finally, our next project is to replicate the model of Centro COMParte, by implementing it in other similar neighborhoods. With this new project, we will be working with more than 5,000 inhabitants in the next 5 years.
