About Us

boy1Asociación Sembrando Semillas de Paz (The Sowing Seeds of Peace Association), better known as Sembrandopaz, is a nonprofit community organization, legally founded in 2005, but with an accumulation of nearly twenty years of social work—a legacy left by JUSTAPAZ. It was registered as a legal entity in Colombia on July 15, 2005. We are dedicated to facilitating the construction of a culture of peace building capacity among grassroots organizations, with the goal of supporting processes of integral and sustainable human development within the populations of the Caribbean region in Colombia. Based on the traditions of the Mennonite Church, Sembrandopaz is devoted to living out the word of God through community, peace, and service. We are a community committed to creative transformation towards holistic life plans that are sustainable, fair, and nonviolent, through pedagogical empowerment.
