The Colombian Caravana is a small and dynamic UK charity, at the centre of an international network of jurists to support lawyers and legal professionals in Colombia. The Caravana is a pioneering initiative based on solidarity, education and advocacy. Colombian human rights lawyers conduct vital work ensuring access to justice for marginalised and excluded victims of human rights violations, including indigenous peoples, Afro-Colombians, small-scale farmers, women, displaced persons, and family members of victims of extrajudicial killing and forced disappearance. Moreover, lawyers play a key role for victims who seek to find truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-repetition. The Caravana works to promote human rights, rule of law, and access to justice in Colombia by collaborating with Colombian human rights lawyers, strengthening their capacity to represent victims and advocate for their safety and well-being in their work. The Caravana began in 2008 when we were first invited by Colombian human rights lawyers to undertake an international delegation of jurists: since then we've organised five biennial delegations to Colombia. We have almost no overheads, an active and engaged board, and a volunteer membership that committed to ensuring that Colombian human rights defenders are able to carry out their work freely without threat to their lives and occupation. A donation to the Caravana is directed immediately towards ensuring we provide the best legal and solidarity support to lawyers at risk.Charity Registration No. 1141255
