Full of enthusiasm to arrive in the field

We offer a warm welcome to our seven new field brigadistas who will accompany human rights defenders and organizations from the Apartado, Barrancabermeja and Bogota Teams

The people saying hi in this photo are: Nátaly (Mexico) who accompanies from the field team in Apartadó, whereas Vieni (Mexico), Emily (Ireland) and Jorge (Mexico) will accompany from Barrancabermeja, and Mara (Spain), Marlinde (The Netherlands) y Arnaud (France) from Bogota

“Two weeks ago we arrived in Bogotá. Seven people of different nationalities, with different backgrounds and perspectives, but all with the same desire to continue strengthening PBI’s Colombia project. It’s interesting to learn from PBI’s 30 years in Colombia and how it’s international character plays a role in defence of human rights, acting as a bridge between the civil society organizations, human rights defenders, and the international community. Behind two intense weeks of training, it is hard to be separated, but we are full of enthusiasm to arrive in the field and get to work.”

Welcome to PBI Colombia!
