Mercy Corpsis committed to Colombia’s peace agreements’ implementation and 12 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through its programs. In addition, it uses a gender equality and protection approach to its crosscutting axes to build stronger, more equitable and safer communities from within.


Gender

Discrimination and social exclusion are omnipresent and hold everyone back, in all dimensions of social and economic development. Therefore, we work with a gender approach, seeking equality and recognizing the particular characteristics of the context and the experiences of each person according to their sexual identity and the social constructions associated with their sex, with its implications and differences, closing gaps and combating discrimination and inequality.

Protection

With our programs we embrace protection as a cross-cutting axis, as we seek to improve safety, defend dignity, respect people’s rights and avoid exposing them to harm to ensure their integrity. Through different components such as psychosocial support, training workshops and the way in which we approach the communities, listening to them and recognizing their needs and capacities.
