La Paz

LA PAZ in La Guajira, Colombia

The Guajira is the desert region of Colombia where the Wayuu Indian Tribe communities are found. It’s estimated that there are around 300,000 Wayuu who live there. This work began in 2000 when a Wayuu community leader named Cecilia Lindao traveled to Santa Marta to seek out David Taylor with the hope that they could join together in developing the work in the Guajira. A partnership was formed between Cecilia and David and the project has grown over the years to now include a school, medical clinic and various community projects. Cecilia passed away some years ago and the La Paz project is now headed up by her sister Reyes Lindao. La Paz School and medical clinic is funded almost exclusively by donations made in the USA and UK
