Fundación Acción Interna


Non-profit organization created in 2012 by Johana Bahamón with the aim of dignifying and improving the quality of life of the prison and post-penitentiary population of Colombia, helping them to transform their lives, vindicate them and reconcile them with civil society.

This purpose has been achieved through the development of actions aligned with the intervention model and the themes of each of its lines of action (awareness, internal growth, training and productivity) that are carried out due to strategic alliances between the Foundation and the public, private and international cooperation sectors.
