Dear Friends and Supporters,

KI 6th Batch of 12 volunteers will soon be finishing their year of volunteering. Many of them will continue to use their newly gained skills and knowledge as they will be absorbed by their placement organizations. We are currently seeking support for our next batch of volunteers, so please keep spreading the word about our work.

An example of how your donations are working to empower our young volunteers

KI Volunteer, Ms. Rohanifah Atar is placed as a legal assistant at Mindanao Peoples Caucus (MPC), a grassroots network of Indigenous Peoples, Muslim and Christian communities and leaders who have common vision for peace in Mindanao.

Rohanifah recently led the information gathering and research for a series of dialogues involving the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) Peace Panel in different areas in Mindanao. The program aims to increase awareness of different ethno-religious groups and communities comprising the Lumads (Indigenous people), Christians, and Muslims and different sectors, such as Local Government and Civil Society Organizations, on the current issues of the peace talks between the MILF and the Philippines Government.

Rohanifah organized series of dialogues, media orientations, and meetings for MPC as part of the program activities. During each of these events Rohanifah also acted as a support staff, member of the secretariat, documentor, and finance assistant.

According to Rohanifah, volunteering at MPC helped her understand more and be immersed on the realities of the conflict situation and the centuries-long Bangsamoro struggle in Mindanao. She also noted that her volunteering experience has contributed a lot to her growth as a young Muslim woman leader.
