The diploma in educational strategies for working with communities affected by the armed conflict, is a proposal that was born at the Catholic University of Manizales in view of the needs and challenges facing the country at this historic moment, where the signing of the peace agreements will allow the cessation of the armed conflict of one of the most representative armed groups in the history of the country. Children, young people and adults have been affected in different ways by the traces of war throughout the national territory, therefore this proposal seeks to provide tools, generate strategies and build with the participants new paths different from those that violence has traced, assuming the challenges of education, generating initiatives that allow the integration of people who dissociate themselves from violence and who have been victims of it. It is important to talk about peace building, but it is essential to know the effects of conflict and the ways of working with communities affected by violence.
