Global Humanitaria works with governments, local NGOs and international organizations to strategically develop and implement programming that result in immediate and long-term change within local communities. Just a few examples of these collaborative programs include:
Projects developed with UNDP reduce violence in Colombia so that young Afro-Colombians living in conflict zones have more opportunities for social and economic development. We do this work within the framework of the UNDP ART initiative (Articulation of Territorial and Thematic Cooperation Networks for Human Development) to ensure that our programs support and complement international and national strategies for local development.
With WFP, we implement Food Security and Nutritional Programs in Latin America within the regional cooperative framework agreement of the WFP. In Colombia, the WFP provides us with part of the food we supply to children in schools where our nutrition experts conduct trainings on nutrition and health with families, teachers and the community.
Our bilateral partners co-finance projects with Global Humanitaria. Without co-financing, much of our programming would be severely limited. Examples of this type of strategic partnership include:
Protect a project combating child sex tourism in Cambodia.
Humanitarian Round Table for Afro-Colombian women to promote positive gender policies in municipalities in Colombia as well as the creation of a School of Gender and Development.
