GeoPark has developed the Land of Opportunities program since 2019 with Colombian regional development bank Findeter to promote economic growth in both municipalities.
GeoPark has been working together with local authorities in Colombia’s Putumayo department to protect the most vulnerable of its neighboring communities in a spell of harsh winter weather that has caused a social emergency.
The program will teach communication tools, art, literature and other subjects to develop the interpersonal skills of 30 youngsters between the ages of 12 and 17 from the Niños de María Foundation.
Cuéntame is the program that provides timely and effective responses to our neighbors’ concerns, worries and requests. The program allows us to understand and comprehensively approach the requests, complaints and claims that are made in our areas of operation, preventing conflict and strengthening long-term sustainable relationships.
