Political advocacy and peace building

Leer en español

In March of 2015 as part of Seed’s relfection component, as a group we spent time discussing the different ways that MCC accompanies the work its partners does in the fields of political advocacy and peace building. To foment reflection, one of the various activities that we participated in were a series visits to four communities in the Caribbean Coast where Sembrandopaz, a long-standing partner of MCC in Colombia, is working.

One of the communities we visited was Pichilin, where the Seeder Alejandra Arboleda accompanies the processes supported by Sembrandopaz.

The community organized a few activities and a beautiful welcome for the visiting Seed group. The Seeders were given a guded historical tour of the community. The community also showed the group their traditional crops such as tobacco, yuca, beans and ñame. And to finish the visit the group was shared in a delicious community cheese soup lunch.

If you would like to know more about Pichilin and the Semilla program, please read Alejandra’s blogs or visit our Facebook page. If you are interested in applying, the application is currently open here in Colombia! Please send a resume and letter of interest to seedprogram@mcc.org or if you have questions please contact Nate Howard <nathanielhoward@mcc.org> the Seed program co-facilitator.
