About Colombia

Colombia is about three times as big as Germany with a population of almost 12 million. Colombia is plagued by a myriad of challenges that threatens its economic prosperity and the wellbeing of its people. The country has a long history of violence and drug trade that continues today. The scale of this problem has led to large numbers of forcibly displaced populations and human rights abuses, both of which fall heavily on women and children. The government has attempted to contain the drug trade, resulting in a 50 percent reduction of cocaine production in the country over ten years. However, despite this progress it is believed that there are more than 300 drug smuggling organizations active in Colombia today.
