The Community Councils & Las Mojarras Foundation,

The Community Council of Tadó and the Community Council of Condoto are representative figures created in 1993 by a law which gave collective property rights to Afro descendant communities of the Colombian Pacific region over the land they have ancestrally inhabited.

Community Leader Aristarco Mosquera

Along with Las Mojarras Foundation, these community based organisations promote the appropriation and sustainable use of their collective territory and the improvement of the livelihoods of the communities who have been historically excluded from social, political and economic process in the region and the country.
