Training Former Guerrilla Fighters as Assistant Motorcycle Service Technicians
To contribute to the "Legitimate Peace" strategy championed by the Colombian government, Incolmotos Yamaha (Colombia) started a training program at its motorcycle service technician's boot camp in the second half of 2021. This program helps former guerrillas from the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) reintegrate into society. At the end of the training, the 24 participants were certified as assistant motorcycle service technicians. According to Incolmotos Yamaha, the goal of the program was to provide the former fighters with the education and specialized skills they would need to re-enter society as civilians and also support and honor the efforts of those 24 people as they tried to start new lives as part of a legitimate peace.
