These two portraits of young women who, after their studies, decided to stay in the municipality in order to make things happen from the inside. Indirect victims of the violent environment of Tumaco, their resistance is exercised in their actions for peace in the municipality of Tumaco. As mothers and activists, they are also committed to the future of their children.
Johanna had her first child at 16 and Lina at 17. Like many women in Tumaco, Johanna and Lina are single mothers, and they support their children on their own. Because of their commitment and activism, they ARE considered social leaders.
They work every day at the Casa de la Memoria, promoting hope and peace for the municipality. Despite the violence in their neighbourhood, they have decided to stay to change things from the inside.
