Ten reincorporation and reintegration projects will offer their products at the social entrepreneurship fair to be held on December 14 and 15 at the main square of the Usaquén Plaza / Boho Market shopping center.

Bogotá, November 24, 2019. Compaz Foundation has joined forces with the United Nations Verification Mission, the Agency for Reincorporation and Normalization – ARN and the Bogotá Hub of Global Shapers to ensure that ten businesses of people in the process of reincorporation and reintegration can participate in the third edition of the social startup fair Fair ImpactCo, organized by Quántica Education.

Three years after the signing of the Final Peace Agreement for the termination of the conflict and the construction of a stable and lasting peace, signed by the Colombian State and the FARC-EP, these projects will arrive to Bogotá to demonstrate that peace and reconciliation are indeed possible. This will be an opportunity to reiterate the commitment of the ex-guerrillas to build peace and their intention to be agents of transformation in the society.

Initiatives such as Confecciones La Montaña, Cerveza La Roja, Manifiesta y TejPaz, Cerveza La Trocha, Café Espíritu de Paz, Mites Artesanías, Café El Tercer Acuerdo, Inzunai and Caguán Expeditions will be added to a list of more than 40 ventures with social impact that can be found at the ImpactCo Fair, on December 14 and 15, from 9 am to 8 pm, at the main square of the Usaquén Plaza / Boho Market.

The support of #FromHandThatBuildPeace products will not only be a message of hope for thousands of ex-combatants who have embraced the peace process, but will confirm that Colombia is now a new country, one that persists in the search for peace and reconciliation.
