The national government realized the training events in 9 municipalities, with 3 department secretaries, 288 teachers, directors and local authorities.

“These training events are the result of two years of work (2011 to May, 2013) with the coordination of the United Nation’s Children’s Fund, Unicef, and the Presidential Program of Integrative Action Against Anti-personal Mines (PAICMA),” said PAICMA Director Daniel Avila to newspaper El Espectador.
