  “It is important to highlight
the will of the Hotel Samarii Resort and Gran Tierra Energy to build peace. They are companies that believe in the reincorporation process; they believe in second opportunities that can change the lives of our ex-combatant population.”

Creating Opportunities for Ex-Combatants to Reintegrate
Every week, 100 kilograms of red tilapia are delivered to the Hotel Samarii Resort, by Commucom, a cooperative of 90 ex-combatants who are participating in Colombia’s reintegration process. The commercial agreement resulted from GTE helping to incorporate this cooperative into its supply chain, providing it with
the opportunity to supply its fish to the hotel’s restaurant serving the company’s workers in Villagarzón, Putumayo. GTE is supporting the Colombian government’s peace-building efforts through initiatives like this one, in partnership with the Agency for Reincorporation and Normalization (ARN), an entity that is helping transition ex-combatants to a new way of living within Colombian society.
