Development of urban farming in Bogota, Colombia

The Air Liquide Foundation supports Projeter Sans Frontières “Sembrando Confianza” (Let’s sow confidence) project. The aim is to find a solution for the lack of food in underprivileged neighborhoods of Bogota, thanks to the development of urban farming.

This NGO is running the project “Sembrando Confianza” in order to try to resolve the issue of food shortages and stimulate economic activity. Projeter Sans Frontières works in around 10 neighborhoods in the south of Bogota. The 25,000 inhabitants of these neighborhoods live in conditions of great poverty. The neighborhood’s long-standing residents live side by side with displaced population who arrived to the capital due to the armed conflict as well as the families of demobilized soldiers (both families of guerilla fighters and paramilitary soldiers). The activities of the “Sembrando Confianza” project encourage all these communities to work together.
