This project has been created to help families to transition farms that have been producing coca and poppy into coffee producers. Similarly it is incentivising the return of smallholders who had been forced to abandon their lands through threats of violence.

El Tablon de Gómez, in the region of Nariño has historically been plagued with violence and insecurity, with FARC and three of it's splinter movements as well as multiple drug trafficking groups operating in the area since the 1970s. Over the past 50 years, many smallholder farmers have, either through circumstance or coercion, tended towards growing coca and poppy to supply the drug processing facilities in the area. Many simply abandoned their land for their own safety. 

As of today there are 264 families participating in this project and producing coffee. The Land Restitution Unit (Unidad de restitución de tierras) offers many avenues of assistance, promoting gender equality, environmental sustainability, social cohesion amongst others, while financially supporting producers in the cultivation, processing and drying of the coffee.
