Project "Promotion of Peace through Interfaith Dialogue and Education"

Résumé

The Project aimed to contribute to peace building and conflict prevention through community-based interfaith and intercultural peace education and advocacy campaign by establishing a venue for dialogue and exchange of ideas among women in conflict areas and developing a center of interfaith and peace education program.

The project partner, Ateneo de Zamboanga University, successfully implemented its two components. The first component – established a venue for dialogue and exchange of ideas among women in conflict areas – brought together fifty-seven (57) women from families of former Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) combatants, Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Subanen, an indigenous group of people in Mindanao to dialogue to establish acquaintances and friendship in order to break the ethnic barriers, develop mutual understanding and set visions for a peaceful Mindanao. The second component developed a trainers’ training manual on interfaith and peace education for children and launched the Center for Interfaith Dialogue and Peace Education.
