Bakongo Paz unites young leaders, war victims and demobilized people who were involved in different armed groups with the aim of helping them overcome their pasts and reconcile. Regardless of how, everyone who attends has been affected by the war that has been facing Colombia for the past 50 years. The methodology creates an environment of peace building, using experiential learning and the Glatung theory about conflict transformation based on empathy, nonviolence and creativity. The young leaders, people from demobilized groups and children from vulnerable communities participate for a week in an immersive experience. During the camp, participants are empowered to become peace ambassadors, sharing their experiences and stories of reconciliation to inspire others to promote peace in their own contexts and communities.
