Upcycling furniture for better lives.

I was born in the south of Bolivar, in one the municipalities heavily hit by the armed conflict in Colombia. Three years ago I arrived in Bogotá looking for work, and if I had stayed home I would have been forced to work in the dangerous mines. Recupera Tu Silla trained me in re-upholstery in their workshops. Today, I’m the plant leader, responsible for teaching the same job I started on to my friends from home. Not only do I now have a new career, but my income is enough to sustain myself here and also my family back home.
