New Volunteers with family at Launch Ceremony

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Thanks to you

With your help, KI has been able to recruit 10 young Muslim volunteers who are now busy working in the community with their respective Host Partner organizations. The volunteers, consisting of 7 Women and 3 Men, were selected from over 70 applicants in January this year. They then underwent 5 weeks of intensive training during February and March. To mark the beginning of their volunteering experience, a launching ceremony was held in Iligan City on March 14. The event was attended by family members of the volunteers, KI alumni volunteers, Host Partner organizations, KI Board of Trustees, and distinguished guests. The guests of honor were Ms Ria Go-Tian,  Project Officer, SGIDU program of the Australian Embassy, Manila  and Ms Laura Engel, Civil Peace Service Adviser, GIZ (German Development Service)

What is happening now?

Our volunteers are now sharing their skills and helping deprived communities across Mindanao. The areas of work include:  Psycho-Social help for victims of Typhoon “Sendong’ and armed conflict; managing a Sustainable Livelihood program; improving Muslim-Christian relations through reconciliation; Micro-finance and organizing communities in conflict affected areas.

You can find more about our volunteers on our website. We will profile the volunteers and their achievements in our reports over the coming months.
