Challenge

There were over 77,000 families who were displaced by the five month-long Battle of Marawi. Among the vulnerable are the children who left their books and other school materials at home when their families were fleeing the city. Many lost their homes to the airstrikes. While the siege is finally over, the traumatic experience is still fresh to many kids. This project aims to start the healing process for 12,000 Maranao children by giving them storybooks of inspiring stories.

Solution

PBSP will provide 3 storybooks each, written in the Maranao language, to children from the besieged Marawi Marawi City.

Long-Term Impact

The storybooks will help heal the wounds of war through inspiring stories that highlight the Maranao identity, culture and community values. They are envisioned to serve as an instrument for peace and development.
