¿WHO ARE WE?

5

LIMPAL Colombia is a sectional branch of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF). Founded in 1915, WILPF International is the oldest women’s peace organization in the world.

WILPF works to achieve peace through non-violent conflict resolution and the promotion of freedom and social, economic and gender-based justice for all people.

LIMPAL Colombia works in solidarity with our founding mothers and with our sisters from all the WILPF chapters across the globe.

In Colombia we are part of a social movement that works towards the construction of a just and inclusive society through the development, defense and promotion of human rights, a society that fosters the empowerment of women and gender justice.

Objectives

Three main objectives guide the work of LIMPAL:

1. Reconstruct the bonds of solidarity that have been broken by the internal conflict.

2. Strengthen processes of empowerment and the enforceability of rights

3. support grassroots projects that develop institutional capacity, alternative local markets and networks of economic justice and fair trade

Where We Work

In the Bolívar department in the Caribbean north of the country, we work in the municipalities of Cartagena de Indias, San Juan de Nepomuceno, San Jacinto and Montes de María with displaced women and other groups affected by the sociopolitical conflict.

In Bogotá, the political and administrative center of the country, we collaborate with organizations and individuals that work within the social movements of women and human rights, and together share the struggle against poverty and the fight for social justice.
