  • Description

    Description

    We are an organization which promotes tourism in Colombia, in regions previously affected by the armed conflict. Through activities and projects based on diversity and inclusion, we transform former war zones into cultural and gastronomic destinations for national and international tourists.

    We see sustainable tourism as a tool for peacebuilding and for socio-economic development in Colombia. For that reason all our activities and projects are both led by and are for young people, victims of the armed conflict, the LGBTIQ community, former combatants, vulnerable and indigenous peoples.

    Our activities:
    - Free Walking Tour Popayan
    - Spanish lessons
    -Dancing Lessons
    -Trekking Tour

    Our projects:

    This is a project that aims to provide a life opportunities for victims of the Colombian armed conflict through tourism. With professional training in English and tourism guidance, our project inspire tourists by sharing their personal stories and a commitment to peacebuilding through street art and murals tours.

    - Get Up - Café
    Get Up - Café is an initiative established to serve as a visitor centre attraction in Colombia. Here, tourists can learn about victims and former combatants’ stories and current projects. They can experience culture while enjoying drinks prepared with “coffee beans of peace” with the taste of reconciliation, development and harmony. Some of the coffee plantations were established as a result of illegal crop replacement scheme as part of the peace agreement. This space will provide opportunities for victims and former combatants, particularly women, who run their own coffee plantations. The women can showcase their products and crafts and tourists can support them.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This cultural exchange is a different one. Is about being part of the peace moment that our country is living. It is about learning how people that were directly affected by the colombian armed conflict can re write their stories through tourism and languages. With us, you will learn how to be a peace promotor, helping a group of young leaders to improve and get new opportunities for their region, helping to heal the wounds of the conflict through activities and projects that can offer a different opportunity for life.
