In Colombia, disadvantaged youth from socially problematic neighborhoods will be trained as qualified cooks to promote healthy, traditional and local cuisine. By doing so, the demand for organic and local food will increase and small farmers in the area will receive more money/fair prices for their products. As the result, disadvantaged youth will have the opportunity to find jobs as qualified cooks or work as entrepreneurs. As well, local consumers will have access to affordable/healthy food.

Manqa in Kennedy is a program integrated of an ICCO bigger country program related to Manqa schools.

This ICCO program is funded by the RVO, that covers a percentage of the functioning of the Kennedy and Cali Manqa schools. As well it involves the participation of other Dutch organizations such as: Generous Minds and Just Nuts. This project is a very important way for youngsters to build personal, technical and entrepreneur capacities at different levels related to its culture and also to knowledge and best practice, using and promoting local Colombian gastronomic products, delivered by local organizations of small peasants producers.
