#10k4Peace: Support Women’s Voices for Peace in Colombia

ABColombia needs YOU!

There is a big ABColombia event coming up in November this year, which we are organising with Colombian women human rights defenders and international policy makers to discuss the achievements of women and the challenges they now face in the Colombian peace process.

Women and girls suffered disproportionately in Colombia’s armed conflict. The Peace Accord provides a unique opportunity for Colombia to change pervasive patriarchal values and build a sustainable peace for women. However, there is still a lot to be done to ensure the gender commitments are actually implemented. Fierce political opposition is threatening the implementation of the hard-won gender agreements.

ABColombia wants to provide an international platform for Colombian women human rights defenders to support them in their efforts to achieve the implementation of the gender agreements in the Peace Accord. You can help us with that! Here is how:

  • Join the conversation #10k4Peace on social media
  • Organise a bake-sale or fundraising event to help ABColombia
  • Make a direct donation on ABColombia’s JustGiving page

Depending on the type of sports event and the amount you raise, we might be able to reimburse your joining fee – these details need to be discussed with the ABColombia staff beforehand.
