FARC re-integration through tourism

As part of a guerilla army, members of FARC have spent their lives in a state of war. UNDP is one of the organizations trying to support the re-integration of these people into Colombian society. A new tourism project wants to attract tourists to former FARC regions like the Meta region with its impressive nature. The purpose is to have FARC members guide tourists, take care of the basic hotel, restaurant and other activities. The mission of this project is to have all participants of the re-integration program self-sustained in income and food supply by end 2018. An ambitious goal which not all participants will reach, however still worth to strive for.
