This Wednesday, at 3 o’clock in the afternoon, ‘Voices of care’ will be launched virtually, a virtual exhibition of ex-guerrillas and ex-guerrillas, members of 15 former ETCR (AETCR), who bet on peace and now reflect on the care in their personal, family and community settings.
In this virtual space, the care economy is positioned as a fundamental element in the reincorporation process.
In the exhibition there are four thematic axes, one of them is ‘Building peace: Reincorporation processes from care systems with a gender perspective in the AETCR’, which was carried out within the framework of a joint work between United Nations Agencies and UN Women with the support of the United Nations Verification Mission, the National Reincorporation Council in its Farc component and the Agency for Reincorporation and Normalization.
Also together with the implementing partner organizations of UNICEF: Together building the future and UN Women: LIMPAL Colombia and the Feminist Group of Thought and Political Action.
At the meeting on Wednesday, women will speak in reincorporation processes that make up the AETCR and will tell, from their own voices, the new roles that they are assuming as mothers, members of families and communities, as well as the challenges that arise in the exercise of their autonomy.
These women will also talk about their reflections on what the project contributed to their lives and some of the experiences on how they approached the gender approach in the care economy, improving the living conditions of women and their families, allowing the participation of them in productive projects and, in addition, how they developed capacities for collective agreement between women and men in their new life stakes.
This project had the participation of 504 people who were linked to the construction of Community Care Plans, in which operational routes were identified and defined in the AETCR to strengthen actions in favor of comprehensive care with a gender perspective.
In these plans, routes were also defined for the implementation of training processes in relation to the care economy with 287 women participating in reincorporation processes.
