You can hear the voices of two of our newest accompaniers, Ilaria and Pendle, as they talk about what draws them to accompaniment work, and their expectations for the work. In this pilot mini podcast series, Pendle and Ilaria reflect on their first few weeks on the job, as they prepare a farewell dinner for Pendle on her last night in Bogotá before leaving to join the accompaniment team in San José de Apartadó.
Call for Applications
Fellowship of Reconciliation Peace Presence (FORPP) is a non-governmental organization dedicated to providing safety, political visibility and solidarity to communities and individuals at risk in Colombia who are working to promote human rights, peace and justice. In addition to providing ongoing physical accompaniment to our partners, we also provide political accompaniment through meetings with Colombian civil and military officials as well as embassies, UN and other international officials. We provide visibility for these struggles through delegations, speaking tours, publications and an online presence, building bridges between communities in the global North and South on issues important to both. We are now opening a call for applications for a new round of international accompaniers.
