Youth Peace Project a Sign of Hope in Conflict-Ridden Mindanao

The start of 2017 was marked by optimism for people living in Mindanao, the southernmost region of the Philippines. At the time, the national government was engaged in peace talks with the two major armed movements operating in the region, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the Communist-led New People’s Army (CPP-NPA), and people were following the negotiations very closely.

In this context, Rural Missionaries of the Philippines- Northern Mindanao Region (RMP-NMR) and WACC partnered to implement a project that sought to engaged youth across the region in efforts to support the peace processes. The project sough to achieve this by establishing online and off-line platforms for dialogue and exchange on peace issues for youth, promoting media literacy, and supporting young people to produce digital media content on youth-related issues in relation to the peace talks. The project also sought to reach a total of 5,000 high school students through media content and collaboration with local educational institutions and local inter-faith and secular youth organizations.
