transforms lives through soccer

'Semillas de Paz' – Seeds of Peace is the first soccer school led by an ex-combatant. Luis Albeiro Soñeth is an individual in the process of reincorporation; over the course of the past year he has trained an average of 80 boys and girls from the townships near the municipality of Anorí in Antioquia, including the 33 children living at Former Territorial Space for Training and Reincorporation (AETCR) La Plancha. The National Police – alongside ARN the community and ex-combatants – promoted this recreational initiative to build peace from the territories.  

He is a dad, an entrepreneur, and he loves his new life

To Alberto, she is his everything – his strength, his motivation and the most beautiful being, that's why he named her Cataleya, like the orchids. Alberto Ocampo lives at AETCR “Las Colinas” in San José del Guaviare. He is also an entrepreneur; he commercializes clothing, footwear and perfumery at his store, and to him being a dad means everything: it is being a friend, a brother and protector for all life.
