Wájaro Foundation Colombia

– subscription plan available

The Wájaro Foundation (www.wajaro.org) is a legal Colombian NGO. It is managed by a diverse Board of Directors who receives input from individuals and organizations with both local and international experience. Wájaro comes as a result of years of engagement with base communities – indigenous, campesino, and urban – from across the Americas.

The word “Wájaro” comes from the language spoken by the Amazonian tribal group known as the Eduria. It means “let’s go together.”  So, it captures in large part what the Wájaro Foundation seeks to do—to walk alongside groups of people engaged in peace and justice work in difficult regions throughout Colombia.

At its core, Wájaro is an active expression of faith in Jesus, and of reverence for the indigenous and vulnerable communities He desires to see flourish.

The Wájaro Foundation works extensively among the Wayuu people in the desert region of northern Colombia and with the Misak of the high Andean region in southwest Colombia. It is an active member of the Pro-Indigenous Christian Consortium of Colombia. It also works hand-in-hand with the Network of Indigenous Evangelical Leaders of Colombia. Wájaro walks out its faith in Jesus and passion to strengthen and equip the Indigenous church through a host of programs. We offer programs in education, association and collective formation, income generation, and more to the communities in Colombia’s war-torn areas. An affiliate ministry partner of South America Mission, Wájaro cooperates with SAM for the proclamation of the Gospel and the glory of God among the nations of South America.
