We currently work with 12 communities of small-scale farmers. These communities group nearly three thousand peasant families, 40% of which live in areas affected by the armed conflict in Colombia. Our programs work on three axes: strengthening of the peasant communities at the organizational and productive level, quality and added value of their products, and commercialization. The commercialization component seeks to positively impact the income of small producers by providing a fair sales channel where we guarantee an additional 20% to the market price. Finally, it should be noted that the beneficiary communities are composed of different types of vulnerable communities: farmers, indigenous people, women, victims of the conflict, etc.
Sustainable development goals
1. No PovertyEnd poverty in all its forms everywhere. Economic growth must be inclusive to provide sustainable jobs and promote equality.
By 2030, ensure that all men and women, in particular the poor and the vulnerable, have equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to basic services, ownership and control over land and other forms of property, inheritance, natural resources, appropriate new technology and financial services, including microfinance
By 2030, build the resilience of the poor and those in vulnerable situations and reduce their exposure and vulnerability to climate-related extreme events and other economic, social and environmental shocks and disasters
Ensure significant mobilization of resources from a variety of sources, including through enhanced development cooperation, in order to provide adequate and predictable means for developing countries, in particular least developed countries, to implement programmes and policies to end poverty in all its dimensions
8. Decent Work and Economic GrowthPromote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all. Sustainable economic growth will require societies to create the conditions that allow people to have quality jobs.
Sustain per capita economic growth in accordance with national circumstances and, in particular, at least 7 per cent gross domestic product growth per annum in the least developed countries
Achieve higher levels of economic productivity through diversification, technological upgrading and innovation, including through a focus on high-value added and labour-intensive sectors
By 2030, achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all women and men, including for young people and persons with disabilities, and equal pay for work of equal value
By 2020, substantially reduce the proportion of youth not in employment, education or training
11. Sustainable Cities and CommunitiesMake cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. There needs to be a future in which cities provide opportunities for all, with access to basic services, energy, housing, transportation and more.
Strengthen efforts to protect and safeguard the world’s cultural and natural heritage
Support positive economic, social and environmental links between urban, peri-urban and rural areas by strengthening national and regional development planning
