PROYECTARTE, a Colombian social organisation, supports children, young people and their families who are affected by exclusion, violence and forced displacement. Its aim is to develop their potential, build paths to resilience and generate creative alternatives to transform their lives and circumstances.
PROYECTARTE projects are organised by qualified interdisciplinary teams and are based on collaboration, drawing on the participation of others to build a fair society and ensure sustainable human development while respecting the environment.
Proyectarte's belief is that development and peace have multiple dimensions, in personal, interpersonal, social and political realms. To promote development, these different dimensions therefore need to be addressed and channelled towards every individual’s right to be happy, the common good and respect for the environment. This multidimensional approach can be put into practice if organisations with similar, complementary goals work together in a network. On this path towards peace and development, comprehensive education plays a vital role.
