Seville Colombian re-integration school
The ERA of Sevilla, Valle del Cauca, has 30 participants -including 8 ex-combatants- grouped around 3 organizations: The ASTRACAVA and AURACOL local farmer associations, and the Red Hip Hop Foundation. Its objective is to reactivate the facilities of a farm owned by the municipality by developing projects in pig farming, fertilizer production, beans, banana, and chili crops. The ERA also aims build a recording studio for the Red Hip Hop Foundation, whose members will be participating in various agricultural projects. This ERA has the support of Sevilla’s municipality, which leased the land, the Valle del Cauca Governorship, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP)UN Verification Mission in Colombia and the World Food Program (WFP).
