This description of Libardo Ariza's work was prepared when Libardo Ariza was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1997.
Libardo Ariza, who grew up in the war-torn town of Velez, Colombia, has developed an alternative retirement model that aims to return to the countryside victims displaced by violence. He works with groups of retirees and pre-retirees to help them acquire and manage plots of farming land in their retirement years.
