Who we are

The Golden Colombia Foundation is a Norwegian non-profit, politically and religiously independent, organization. We were founded in 2006 and aim to contribute to social and economic development in the country.

 

For several years, we have worked with cultural exchange between Norway and Colombia. We have established the Centro Cultural La Provincia in Cartagena on the Caribbean coast, where we organize activities and courses related to Colombian culture, both for Colombians and tourists.

 

Colombia’s major problem is international cocaine traffic, and Golden Colombia is pursuing alternative developments in the country to strengthen the opportunities for marginalized people to find work in the legal economy. We assist in the development and export of agricultural products through the Golden Colombia Gourmet initiative, and we work with the development of skills among marginalized youth through the Albalab Activity Centers, where we also welcome international volunteers.

 

We also work on drug prevention through the Narkotikapolitikk.no website and our participation (such as here) in the UN’s processes for drug policy development.
