What do we do?

CLAYSS is in partnership with EDUCAPAZ, the National Education for Peace Programme that, in turn, is comprised of civil society organizations working for Educación Rural Popular (Popular Rural Education) and Educación Crese (citizenship education, reconciliation and socio-emotional education). They address Colombian educational communities affected by the armed conflict that lasted more than 50 years. This Programme brings the service-learning pedagogy to educational institutions as a strategy to overcome those differences that have divided the Colombian people for so many years.


"Recycling, cultivating, generating and helping my learning I develop" (2018)

Educational Institution: Santo Domingo Savio

Educational Institution: El Silencio

City: Planadas

This area suffered the consequences of several natural disasters, such as avalanches and landslides, significantly affecting the living conditions of the community. The educational institution relieved the need to undertake a plan of soil and water sources restoration and reforestation, intending to mitigate the impact of events that put the lives of many people at risk.

The school generated different spaces for community involvement, promoted the integration of diverse areas of learning and favoured the development of social and cognitive skills, creating awareness. In addition, it trained the community members to identify the problems, favouring positive action in the resolution of the problems identified.

"Social transformation from education through literacy in the Nasa indigenous community"

Educational Institution: Ethnic Educational Institute Nasawe’sx Fi’zñi

Educational Institution: Campus

City: Planadas

Contributing to the conservation of the ancestral knowledge of the Nasa indigenous culture, the exchange of knowledge between elders of the community and students of the educational institution is promoted to develop literacy processes in the mother tongue. 

Students and members of the Indigenous Guard have developed training activities in Nasa Yuwe language for community members, fostering the creation of cultural spaces that preserve elements of indigenous culture.
