    • Project

      Mindanao, located in the southern part of the Philippines, has been in the limelight of national and international media especially after Marawi City, the sole Islamic City of the country, was under siege in May 2017. The 5-months long-armed confrontations between the ISIS-inspired Maute group and the country’s armed forces displaced more than 500,000 individuals including the youth, elderly, women and children.

      In Central Mindanao, there have been displacements and insecurities due to armed conflicts and summary executions coupled with ineffective delivery of social services of government agencies, slow-paced rehabilitation process as in the case of Marawi IDPs, and backward economic situation. With their mothers, young women take the burden of domestic and economic responsibilities while their men are away. The young people especially young women experience varied forms of abuse during the displacement such as sexual harassments, illegal recruitment, trafficking, discrimination in the workplace, among other cases.

      Raising Voices of the Bangsamoro Young Women project enhances the political participation of the Bangsamoro young women in the new Bangsamoro Autonomous Region on Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) through strengthening their capacities to raise their voices and perspectives on political issues affecting the youth sector. The project has the following specific objectives: a) Build the capacity of the Bangsamoro Young Women on political participation in Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM); b) Strengthen the advocacy campaign of Bangsamoro Young Women, and c) Establish networks and alliances among potential tri-people women organisations and communities.
