Buy a Nonviolent Peaceforce Peace Bond® and you might end up living in a safer, saner world. Peace Bonds support unarmed peacekeepers working to reduce violence around the world Nonviolent Peaceforce (NP) is an International NGO engaged in the creation of a large-scale international unarmed peacekeeping force, composed of trained civilians. In partnership with local groups, NP members apply proven non-violent strategies to protect human rights, deter violence and help create space for local peacemakers to carry out their work. Our vision is to create a large-scale nonviolent peace force through the development of models for field deployments, public education, training and advocacy NP launched its first joint project in Sri Lanka in summer 2003 at the invitation of -and in partnership with- local groups. More than 64,000 people have been killed and 1.6 million displaced in the civil war that has ravaged Sri Lanka since 1983. NP Sri Lanka Project has now acquired, by January 2007, a staff of more than 50 individuals, both local peacekeepers and international professionals. In 2005 NP began working on the field start-up of additional projects in the Philippines, Uganda and Colombia. Beside those countries, in 2007 our teams have provided a rapid response to Human Rights Defenders’ request for accompaniment in Guatemala.

The outside edge of the slice is left in a natural, dark shade to create a vibrant contrast in colors. Tagua is a type of palm nut that is sustainably harvested from the South American rainforest. Often referred to as vegetable ivory because of its similarities to ivory, it can be dyed a myriad of vibrant colors. Handmade in and fair-trade imported from Colombia. The Hunger Site will fund 25.0 cups of food for each Peace Dove Double Tagua Bracelet purchased.

Marisol Rodriguez conceived a design that would last throughout a woman’s pregnancy, minimizing what a mother-to-be would need to buy for herself. There are three different two-tone dress styles in the collection, with either vertical or horizontal pleating. In every case the brighter of the two colors is the one revealed as the wearer’s belly expands. As she was particularly troubled by high unemployment among women who are in their 50s, she and her mother created Bogota Factory to produce several items locally. Rodríguez’s Skin maternity line is one of Bogota Factory’s first offerings that unfortunatelly it's not yet available overseas or on the internet...!!

This book tells the story of a journalist and his mid-life crisis. Based on real events, the American-born Thompson explores what his life might have been like if his father had taken a dangerous posting in Bogota, Colombia over the relatively idyllic base of Sydney, Australia. Thompson does not come across as the most like-able of characters, practically abandoning his wife and new born to pursue this trip. To his credit, he acknowledges his morally questionable actions, and this context gives the reader a sense of the seriousness of this yearning for change. Compelling reading.

I prefer Alpina (ever so slightly sugar-grainy and oh so thick yet spreadable), but this one is nice. As versatile as nutella - use on toast, with ice cream and fruit (especially figs), or have by the spoonful. No, not the same as caramel or dulce-de-leche, people! In the same culinary family but the aforementioned are NOT substitutes. Not good for the waistline, but "nutella" and "ice cream" above should've clued you in on that.

Maria is a Colombian teenager who's been dealt a really crappy hand. She works a factory job to help support her family, lives in a cramped home, and gets pregnant by her boyfriend. So to make money she makes the poor and highly dangerous decision of becoming a drug mule. Thats right, swallowing 60 bags of heroin and flying into New York City. Ugggggggg.
