In the predominantly Muslim region of Western Mindanao in the Philippines, we are working with communities to resolve local conflicts, and strengthen relationships between them and local authorities.
In 2018, Conciliation Resources, alongside our local partners, began new work which aims to empower and engage communities in Mindanao. As part of this project, we helped to establish 12 Community Safety Working Groups in communities across four locations.
We spoke to Paul Adolfo, our Mindanao Programme Manager, and members of the Community Safety Working Groups, about the project.
