The Foundation

We activate ecosystems and build capabilities that enable new generations to lead the construction of a peace culture in Colombia

Our Theory of Change

If we develop life, leadership and social entrepreneurship skills in children and young people.

Support and empower participants’ social transformation initiatives.

And weave networks and activate ecosystems that enable their participation and amplify their voice.

We will prevent risks and violence and empower new generations to lead the construction of a peace culture in Colombia.

This will help build a country that respects life in all of its forms and that promotes love, fairness, liberty, diversity, community and shared responsibility.

This is us

WE ARE MOVED BY A HIGHER PURPOSE

WE ARE MOVED BY A HIGHER PURPOSE

We are moved by the firm desire of helping build a sustainable, more peaceful, democratic and inclusive world. We have an optimistic view on life and not only believe that change is possible, but that achieving it is in our hands.

BEFORE CHANGING THE WORLD, WE CHANGE OURSELVES

BEFORE CHANGING THE WORLD, WE CHANGE OURSELVES

We know that the quality of social projects is a reflection of the state of mind and heart of the person who executes them. This is why we encourage self-reflection, mindfulness practice and challenge ourselves to go beyond our comfort zone to learn about new ways of being and doing.

WE PRACTICE  EMPATHY

WE PRACTICE  EMPATHY

We see human beings instead of positions or stereotypes. We listen closely to understand others, we put ourselves in their shoes even though we may not walk in them. We connect with humanity, love, respect and freedom and by doing so we begin the long road towards
peace.

WE BUILD ON CAPABILITIES, NOT ON SHORTCOMINGS

WE BUILD ON CAPABILITIES, NOT ON SHORTCOMINGS

We are inspired by the infinite potential within all human beings. We bring out the best in each person and situation. Where many may see a passive victim, we see potential for transformation, creativity and resilience. Where many see shortcomings, we see human, social and cultural capabilities. We build on what’s been built before, from the ground up. This transforms mental frameworks, a key step towards transforming realities.

WE VALUE AND PROMOTE DIVERSITY

WE VALUE AND PROMOTE DIVERSITY

We believe nobody knows better than anyone else. We possess different kinds of knowledge. We understand diversity as a strength to see and experience the world from a different perspective and build a society where we can all coexist by doing so.

WE EXPERIENCE INNOVATION
FROM COCREATION

WE EXPERIENCE INNOVATION
FROM COCREATION

We are always exploring new ways of doing things. We investigate, experiment, make mistakes, learn and un-learn. We are always willing to redesign, contribute and co-create.

WE ARE WEAVERS

WE ARE WEAVERS

We listen, observe, dialogue and connect with others. We practice and foster collaboration more than competition. We work on that which brings us together instead of that which tears us apart. We weave bridges in order to bring opposites, postures and worlds together.

WE DO MORE WITH LESS

WE DO MORE WITH LESS

We are very thorough and transparent about our accountability. We are efficient, resourceful and aware of the invested resources. We understand how important it is to be careful with money, quality, time and relations in order to multiply our impact.

WE ENJOY WHAT WE DO

WE ENJOY WHAT WE DO

Our work is connected to our life’s purpose. This is why we are joyful, grateful and energetic when we work and tackle challenges and tests.
