PADF works closely with the Colombian Government (GOC) to support internally displaced families in their journeys to comprehensive reparation under the Victim’s Law, and integration into their new host communities. We work in the most politically unstable regions of the country to strengthen community leaders and empower communities to participate in local politics. As part of our work with communities, we facilitate the recognition of diversity and the reconstruction of the social fabric, contributing to the implementation of the GOC’s Territorial Development Programs (PDET).
We foster public policy implementation through technical assistance to local civil society organizations with an anticorruption agenda and strengthen citizen oversight of public spending. Across our programs, we mainstream gender based violence prevention through information sessions regarding existing services, training public officials, and disseminating helpline information through our social media platforms.
