Colombia is internationally recognized within the list of countries in conflict in the second oldest conflict on the planet [1]. The duration of this conflict and its intensity have been maintained close to 20% of the population in conditions of victimization [2]; it is estimated that investment in the country to contain violence corresponds to 30% of its GDP [3], that is, six times more than what is invested in education. The damage caused by the armed confrontation is enormous, however, the country is facing a new opportunity derived from the peace agreement between the FARC guerrilla and the Government of Juan Manuel Santos.
