About the family

Darío and his family, deeply rooted in the region, have experienced displacement and the ravages of the armed conflict. Hailing from a family of farmers, they have embraced cocoa cultivation due to its notable profitability. Despite the challenges posed by wildlife occasionally feeding on their crops and farm animals, they have passionately taken on the responsibility of preserving and caring for the forest, water, and the diverse wildlife that shares their home.
