Your new field of activity
The Consejo Regional Indigena del Cauca (CRIC) in Popayán is the governing body of the indigenous organisations in the Department of Cauca and seeks to strengthen the rights of the indigenous communities through education and health programmes, support in land conflicts, political influence and media work. Cauca is one of the regions in Colombia most affected by the presence of illegal actors, militarisation by the Colombian army, violence and human rights violations.

You will have the opportunity to work in the Communications Department of one of the most renowned indigenous organisations in Latin America and to train young journalists and communications experts in the Autonomous Indigenous Intercultural University (UAI-IN) in Popayan.
