This year is remarkable in that it marks the 25th anniversary of Peace Corps in Colombia (1961-1981 and 2010-present). Peace Corps volunteers who were first here in the 1960’s will tell you that a lot has changed. Big malls, movie theaters and traffic replace once open fields of grass and trees. The landscape has changed, but even now, 25 years later, Peace Corps Colombia continues forward in its mission to provide effective and sustainable service to the people here. We thought we’d commemorate the passing of 25 years by taking a closer look at Colombia, now and then. See for yourself.
