Building Community

leo y etelAs our mission and vision state, Sembrandopaz is more than an organization. We are a community. We also work to foster community in Sincelejo and beyond. This work involves creating spaces; spaces for community to come together, spaces for fair marketing and sale of community-produced products, spaces for education and training, and spaces for sharing artistic and cultural activities.
