'Spirit of Peace' is a project created and founded by ASCAFE in Colombia. Carlos, the owner of ASCAFE, describes this project as "transformation for the region", 
aimed at helping re-integrate former rebel soldiers back into society through coffee farming. 

In 2017, the Colombian government granted amnesty to all FARC soldiers who would relinquish their weapons and rejoin society. However, many of these soldiers were the children of rebels, so they grew up in the hills and only knew combat and survival; lacking the skills to lead a healthy life. The Spirit of Peace coffee program works with the government to provide the former soldiers with plots of land to farm, ASCAFE then helps them by providing coffee seeds, education and support in the form of processing and milling.
