Corporación Horizontes Colombianos
The Corporación Horizontes Colombianos is a non-profit organization, founded in 2002 by the German citizen Dorothea Wolf-Nurnberg. It was created with the purpose of raising awareness of cultural values and the particular needs of ethnic minorities, in order to support programs to improve educational conditions. It seeks to contribute to a change of mentality in society, opening causes that allow us to relate, recognizing each other, as well as the implementation of popular values and knowledge through autonomous work and teamwork, education, research and the arts, since the value of the knowledge of people is incalculable. This allows us to look at Colombia positively!
Corporación Horizontes Colombianos actively participates in regional, national and international indigenous movements, with emphasis on those oriented to the defense of their territories as a source of Life.
"My vision has always been, since my arrival in Colombia, to create something significant in the education sector. By contemplating the lack of equal opportunitiesm for all people, in their access to knowledge, I promoted the development of people's capacities searching a better use of the immense biological, ecological and cultural wealth that Colombia has."
