Bp Duque Family_8378E

Our vision as articulated by Colombian founder, Dr. Blanca Lucia Echeverry, is as follows:

To be a highly competent organization in Colombia and in the Episcopal Church that works for social justice and social outreach that benefits the most vulnerable sectors and to work toward contributing to the peace in Colombia.

COLFORPAZ is a 501c3 organization dedicated to the accompaniment of our brothers and sisters in Colombia.  Our board is composed of veterans of mission work, formed with the goal of doing mission work with a new model focused on developing sustainable local development, transparency, and true partnership between the people of both the US and Colombia.
