[Held on 6/19] What kind of jobs are there in the slums of Colombia in South America? Ask residents directly via Zoom!
A young Colombian man living in a slum talks about reality in Japanese ……
On June 19, Kaihatsu Media, an NPO that operates the media site “Ganas,” which specializes in developing countries and international cooperation, held an online interview entitled “What kind of jobs are there in the slums of Colombia in South America? We’ll ask the residents directly via Zoom!” We will hold a lecture. The speaker will be a young Colombian university student who still lives in the slums of Medellin, once known as the “world’s most terrifying city.” I will talk about the reality of slums in Japanese.

Medellin, Colombia’s second largest city in South America, was once home to the world’s largest drug organization. The Medellin Cartel, its leader Pablo Escobar, drug wars, and gangs…I’m sure many of you have become interested after watching the Netflix drama “Narcos” or the TBS TV show “Crazy Journey.” . However, when you actually visit Medellin, you will be surprised at the gap with this negative image. The scenery that foreigners see is a modern cityscape. The roads are well-ordered, criss-crossing, and clean. There is also an elevated railway. It’s like a developed country. By the way, Medellin, which was said to be the most frightening city in the world in the 1980s and 1990s, was chosen as the “Most Innovative City in the World” in 2013. If the innovative landscape is the “front face”, Medellin also has a “back side” (although for the residents, there is no front or back side…). The symbol of this is the slum. In this lecture, we will connect via Zoom with a Colombian young man (university student) living in the slums of Medellin, and we will have him talk a lot about the unknown “reality of slums.” The theme is “Slum Work”. What kind of jobs are there in the slums (including dark ones), how much money do you get for what kind of jobs, what hours do you work, and what are the prices like (compared to the slums and the city center)? Let’s dig deeper into these themes and uncover the reality of life in the slums. Also, let’s ask the Colombian youth who will be speaking about their backgrounds, what they think about in their daily lives, and what kind of future they have in mind. rest assured. This young man speaks a little Japanese (we will help you with any parts that are difficult to understand). It is quite rare to have the opportunity to hear the real life of the slum directly from the residents in Japanese. Even if you actually go to Colombia, it is not easy to step into the slums, let alone hear the stories directly from the slum dwellers. Please feel free to come and visit us if you are a university student who wants to work in a job that contributes to poverty reduction in the future, a working adult who is interested in JICA Overseas Cooperation Volunteers, or a man or woman of any age who loves Latin America. Would you like to get a glimpse of “one of the real Colombians” that is hard to see from the outside? *Ganas, an NPO media specializing in developing countries and international cooperation, will be holding a program called “Global Media Camp in Colombia” from August 31st (Saturday) to September 9th, covering the slums of Medellin.
