There are many who have given up on Colombia. They have washed their hands of her. When people ask, “Why Colombia?” it is in light of a global panorama of the nation depicting only violence and destruction. Give Us Names sees something different. We have taken a step closer and have seen the other side. After spending time in Colombia, living and working with the people, growing to understand the pains and passions of a nation, we have fallen for Colombia. When we think of her, we see faces. We see homes. We see human dreams and struggles, much like our own. We see stories left untold and we believe that in telling these stories, people will come to know the Colombia that we love.
These are people who have passed through countless injustices and still dare to hope.
We hope you jump in and join with us in telling this grand narrative. Be an adventurer, dreamer, explorer, and imagineer. Celebrate life, fight with us for restoration. Be a storyteller.
