Everything’s Ready for a New Season of ‘Golombiao, the Game of Peace’
August 15, 2018

Drummond Ltd., the Colombian government’s Reincorporation and Normalization Agency (ARN in Spanish), and the Mayor of Cienaga have prepared the courts and students from six schools in Cienaga for the inauguration this Thursday, August 9, of a new season of the “building values through games” strategy. 

The students at the schools Alianza para el Progreso, El Carmen, La Maria, Alfredo Correa de Andreis, Enoc Mendoza and Carlos Garcia Mayorca will field the six teams representing the principles of equality, non-violence, freedom of expression, active participation, non-discrimination, and caring for oneself, others, and the environment, which are the principles promoted by the ‘Golombiao, the Game of Peace’ methodology.

This strategy is the product of a government effort to work on issues related to prevention, good use of free time, and safeguards for the rights of adolescents by strengthening arenas that will motivate young people to get along with each other.

In its work with former combatants, the ARN discovered that 40% of all people involved in a reintegration process acknowledge they joined the armed group when they were minors. As indicated by ARN Coordinator for the Magdalena-Guajira region, Jose Nicolas Wild: “That figure just kept on echoing in our heads. It challenged us to not only help former combatants build new life goals and ambitions, but also to dedicate ourselves to prevention with young people, because the most critical age group – the age at which they join armed groups – is between 12 and 13 years of age.”
