Philippine Youth Leadership Engaging a New Generation in the Southernin Inter-Ethnic Dialogue and Conflict Resolution Philippine Youth Leadership Program: Engaging a New Generation in the Southern Philippines in Inter-Ethnic Dialogue and Conflict Resolution (PYLP Year 6) Sample Project Proposals Susan Russell, Lina Davide Ong, & Rey Ty, Editors © 2010 International Training Office Northern Illinois University DeKalb, Illinois, U.S.A. CHAPTER 4: PROJECT PROPOSALS “PAZ for SMILE (Shaping Missions Integrating Life’s Experiences)”: Grassroots’ Holistic Formation through Inter-Ethnic & Intergenerational Dialogue and Peace Aldrin B. Abdurahim I. Rationale: Through the years, peace building and various co mmunity projects have been very functional in the various conflict affected areas manifested in educational awareness through seminars and training, rehabilitation and reconciliation pro cess and other relief operation. Discerning on the present conflict struggle of Mindanao specifically in Zamboanga City with various groups from Muslims, Christian and Indigenous people specifically Subanons, youth and children plays a very important role in inspiring leaders and elders to actively take part in building a better society. Presently, Zamboanga City and nearby provinces of Basilan and Jolo, Sulu were branded as the “kidnapping Capitals of the Philippines”. The said label generalizes the people of the community. Yes, kidnapping incidents happen due to econo mic incapacities to earn a living and support extended families. Thereby, allow more access to incidences of Kidnapping for ransom from separatist group and unidentified network link to the Abu Sayyaf. Due to this conflict, innocent Muslims face di scrimination and genera lizations from various cultural identities and social and religious groups being the minority from a dominant catholic city. Most of which are Muslims from nearby coastal areas of Rio Hondo and Mariki. The said community consists of various ethnic groups like Tausug, Sama, Yakan, Badjao and Islamized Christian. It is also believed that Christian cannot enter the community for they will be beaten and put to death. According to Article 7 of the Universal Declara tion of Human Rights which states that “All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discr imination in violation of this declaration and against any incitement to such discriminati on”. This right protects from wrong notions from different people especially the children and yout h of diverse orientation and religion who continuously believe that Muslims of the area shoul d not be trusted, given equal status with the majority, access to social services like education, health, quality of empl oyment and political affairs. Also, because of their physical appearances, they are misjudged by the majority as slaves, robbers, criminals and terrorists. In reality, being a fellow Muslim brother, it hurts me so much thinking of the labels, type casting, biases and discriminations they often received. In a democratic society where people are to be treated equally, be it you’re from different religion, respect should be practiced and acceptance of who we are should be valued. Zamboanga City, composed of a tapestry of various cultures and is considered as a melting pot of traditions, beliefs and practices, will serve as an ideal community of peace advocates wanting to not just promote peace and inter-ethnic dialogue but as well treat it as a way of life. II. Project Description: PAZ, Chavacano term for Peace also stands for Peace Advocates Zamboanga. It is a Non- Governmental organization which has existed for the past fourteen years trying to strengthen more communities with peace advocacy and inter-e thnic dialogue. It has been implementing its 1 various peace advocacy projects mainly in Zamboanga City and secondarily within Western Mindanao region including the Muslim-dominated provinces of Basilan and Sulu. Being part of PAZ, various communities have be en entered to advocate the culture of peace through various forms highlighting the participa tion of the youth and children from diverse faith groups. The essence of being in solidarity has been one of the focal themes in promoting and advocating peace as a way of life. To better advocate “PAZ”, communities should be strengthened with the ac tive participation of the youth and children and the supervision and guidance of the community leaders. ACCESS PYLP Batch 6 and other Alumni in part nership with the Peace Advocates Zamboanga and Youth Solidarity for Peace, a network of youth organizations in the city will launch “PAZ for SMILE (Shaping Missions Integrating Life’s Experiences): Grassroots Holistic Formation through Inter-Ethnic Dialogue and Peace. It will be able to connect Muslims-Tausug, Yakan, Badjao, Sama to the Christians and Indigenous Peoples specifically the Subanons. The project integrates the grassroots’ holistic formation of inter-ethnic dialogue and peace to communities through SMILE programs. It was primarily designed to transport “Peace or PAZ” to the local community in various forms to include education; operations, awareness; dialogue and solidarity that will eventually shape missions fo r the community. Also, formulate strategies to help the community for self-help assistance based on its needs. The project functions in various approaches that include support, help, access, respond, experience, serve (SHARES). Activities will be based on the SHARES paradigm of support through sharing resources, helping during the preparation and implementation, access to strengths and skills of volunteers, respond to the needs of the community, experience service and outreaches, and serve for more. The SHARES principle will be an inspiration for all. III. Objectives of the Project: • To deepen commitment of youth and children to peace advocacy and inter-ethnic dialogue through SMILES and SHARES paradigm; • To strengthen the involvement of the constituents in the affairs of the barangay and other communities; • To strengthen spirit of volunteerism in extending help to various communities for development among Tri-people youth leaders; • To integrate youth’s mission in advocating the culture of peace depending on the need of the communities; • To empower youth leaders in shaping the city of our dreams free from discriminations and biases; IV. Output of the Project: The project establishes a strengthened networ k of youth leaders capable of empowering communities in Zamboanga City. The project also creates a directory of peace partners from institutions, organizations, religious and social groups and even individuals with their own respective identity. A trainer’s training modul e, compilation and SMILES documentary will be made at the end of the implementation of the project based on the four major activities mentioned; A responsible and empowered commu nity through the existing youth organizations self-help assistance based on the identified needs cap able of managing the affairs of the locality will be produced; A strengthened partnership from Non Governmental Organizations, People’s Organizations, Local Government Unit and other stakeholders of the community; 2 V. Outcome of the Project: The project serves as a bridge in linking various communities to various institutions of the society capable of providing basic social services and development thro ugh partnership and collaborations. The project develops a pool of youth leaders with spirit of volunteerism capable of strengthening communities in organizing the affairs and inte gration of activities, projects and programs identified as a structured learning experience for children, youth and other member of the community. The youth leaders serve as the mind and heart of the project in laying out plans to the implementation; it will be an avenue to carry out missions shaping the city to be a city of our dreams-ideal community. Thus, deepen their commitment for more peace advocacy programs and inter-ethnic and intergenerational dialogue. The community will be a responsible and partic ipative community in the affairs of various institutions. Beneficiaries will be responsible to safeguard personal commitment of change and sustainable peace and development. In the long r un, pool of leaders had influence other youth to join the cause of building a network of change. Better appreciation of the differences will create impact and a common ground for reflection and will eventually result for more strategies to work situations properly. The successful conduct serves as an inspiration for others to do the same. Interfaith dialogue and peace through conflict resolution will be treated as a way of life among Muslims, Catholics, Protestants, and Indigenous peoples specifically Subanons in Zamboanga City, Mindanao and the Philippines. VI. Project Components: The project consists of four implementations for the whole year focu sed and based on the advocacies of PAZ for easier access of SMI LES and SHARES. The following will be the activities of the project per quarter. First is awareness of PAZ for SMILE through advocacy and orientation of the project to partner organizations like PAZ, YSP, IRSMP, Business sector, PYLP and ACCESS Alumni in a series of meeting and consultations. Second is education for a SMILE. It includes Culture of Peace and Interfaith Dialogue Orientation through workshops a nd trainers training for youth leaders who will be spearheading the said project. Third is operation SMILE. It is the preparati on, mobilization and actual implementation of the project. It brings youth leaders into a community outreach using the “Toothbrush for a SMILE” medium. With the use of toothbrush and toothpaste, children undergoes an actual toothbrush operation and be informed of the proper management of the teeth. The sharing of experiences and interaction follows. It is allowing all to access dr eams and ambitions of beneficiaries, identifying critical threats to peace causing community probl ems and eventually work on shaping missions for the future. 3 The last is SMILE for a SMILE. It consists of the evaluation and assessment of the project. The consolidation of the workshop outputs facilitates a planning mechanism for another mission based on the needs of the community. The project consists of various phases of implementation- Networking, Organizing, Implementation and Assessment and Evaluation. ¾ Networking- This stage establish a netw ork able to link resources, access funds and supports from groups and organizati ons to include Non-Governmental Organizations, Government Offices, Civil Society, People’s Organizations and Religious Groups. ¾ Organizing- Acquisition of resources to incl ude funds, finances, disbursement of expenses and liquidation works in this stage.

It is a diverse province composed of different tribes, ethnicities and religions. The place is predominantly Muslims but there are also Christian group of peopl e living there. It is relatively peaceful in Tawi-Tawi compared to the other parts of Mindanao. On the other hand, the province faces many social and economic problem s. In one of the barangays named Barangay Boheh Basag, which is very far from the schools and establishments, faces a large number of unemployment, high illiteracy rate and poverty. Acco rding to the Article 21-2, everyone has the right to have access to public service. And one of th e public service they need is to have a school in their community. Many children were not give n the chance to go to school and learn. It is therefore the goal of this project to help the out-of-school children of Barangay BOheh Basag to learn basic things such as the English and Filipi no alphabet, how to write and count. It is also hope that by the end of the project, parents and children will realize the importance of education. This project will be implemented starting this June 2009 and will continue throughout the school year. Basically, we will be the one who w ill be teaching the children on the first day but later on we will be hiring someone from the community who had been to school and unemployed. We will be monitoring the progress of the project by visiting them every 2 ndSaturday of the month. Regarding this project, we’ll be form ing a committee which will mostly come from my school and others will be from different civic a nd youth organizations wherein they will have an interaction because they will be the combinati on of Christian and Muslim youths. By this interaction, they can enhance their understanding in each religion and faith. This project will be implemented to teach the out-of-school children basic learning and provide a whole day of fun and games. This project aims to achieve these objectives: to provide the children of Boheh Basag days of fun and learning, to sharpen the youths’ skills in community involvement, to raise the awareness of the parents on th e importance of education, and to promote cooperation, understanding and harmonious relatio nships between the people. The target beneficiaries of this project are 30 out-of-school children from the age ranging from 8-12 years old. The expected outcome of this project are to increase the pe ople’s awareness on the importance of education, awareness on the real situation and need of Barangay Boheh Basag and better understanding among the youth and the children. A documentation of the project, learnings and memorable memories for the children and a committee of youth leader volunteers are the expected outputs of the project. This project will be implemented with the help of the Student Advisory Board of the Science High School who will be helping in finding funds for the materials needed. We will be tapping, provincial, municipal, and barangay officials as well as other civic and youth organizations. With this, we will be finding partners which can help. The whole day sessions goes on like this: 8-9 arrival of the volunteers and registration 9-9:15 giving of educational kits which includes paper, notebook and pencil 9:15-10:15 teaching sessions with the kids (alphabet, writing, etc.) 10:15-11:15 snacks and games for the children 11:15-12:00 drawis ngssions 12-1 serving of lunch 1-2:15 teaching sessions (numbers and counting) 2:15-3:15 gsaanekss 3:15-4:30 story-telling 10 Diverse Community Members Making Peanut Products Together Doreena Pauline V. Aranal Liloy is one of the municipalities of Zamboanga del Norte, Philippines. It is mainly an agricultural community and one of its major crops is peanuts. Liloy is a diverse community with different identities living in it. Because of its dive rsity in identities, there is now occurring a gap between the communities that results to a disunited Liloy. Each community has its own way on how to make a product out of peanut. Hence, I will use peanuts as my medium to gather represen tatives from the different community who has diverse identities. During the gathering, each re presentative of the community will share its own idea on how to make a product out of peanuts. Th is project doesn’t only entitles to improve their skills in making peanut products but at the same time, they will also have sessions and workshops on how to make a united community despite of its being diverse. Therefore, they will have the chance to know more about the identities of other people. At the same time, they will gain new knowledge that can change their previous perceptions about other people’s identities. Article 7 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights provides the framework for this project. According to Article 7 of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights: “All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimin ation to equal protection of the law. All are entitled of equal protection against discrimination in violation of this declaration and against in any incitement to such discrimination.” This project expects 25 representatives of the different communities with different culture identities. This includes unemployed mothers, out-of-school youths, and elderly who are Christians and Muslims. This project is a one whole day activity. The activity includes the following: 8:00-8:30- Arrival, gathering, and registration of the participants 8:30-9:00- Short sharing about the objectives of the project 9:00-10:15- Intergenerationa l and Inter-faith workshops 10:15-10:30- Break 10:30-11:45- Building a just community 11:45-1:00- LunB cheak 1:00-2:30- Orientation and session on how to make peanut products 2:30-4:30- Hands A-ctivity 4:30-5:00- Evaluation of the finished product 5:00-5:30- Advice the participants on what they can do in promoting unity and in generating their income 5:30-6:00C-losinram Departure The project aims to develop a better unde rstanding among the different communities in Liloy that can results to a united place despite of its being diverse. After the gathering, each representative will go back to their respective community and is expected to share their experiences on what were their feelings being t ogether with other identities. They should share whatever they had learned from the workshop a nd help one another in making an advocacy in promoting “Unity amidst Diversity” in their community—Liloy in general. 11 This project doesn’t only develop mutual understanding among the people of Liloy but it is also helping in promoting Local made products of Liloy that can help in its development as a municipality. For this reason, citizens of Liloy s hould be united and help one another to attain their dreams for the better meant of their place. This project would be coordinated and supp orted by the Local Government of Liloy, Peace Advocates Zamboanga, and Youth Solidarity for Peace, Ave Maria College, and Claret School of Zamboanga City Supreme Student Government. 12 Tools for Peace Nurhida Asaali Rationale/background: Zamboanga City is a small city located at the south western part of Mindanao. This city is a Spanish inspired, some of the buildings there ha Spanish styles. It is also a city with diverse groups, ranging from the Christians, Muslims, Samal, Sama, and Yakan Badjao and many others. Due to lack of jobs and poverty many parents cannot provide their children with school supplies, and because of this they are not able togo to school. Because of this many children mostly Muslim out of school children are discrimi nated and judge just because they are not able to go to school. So in a barangay in Zamboanga called Mariki, I will implement my project entitled “Tool for Peace” this project will encourage these out of school kids to go back to school through giving them school supplies and teaching them basic things like reading and writing. This project, “Tools for Peace,” will help the students in their studies thru the school items that will be given to them. This relates to the article # 26 the human right which states that everyone has the right to education. Project description: y This project would be implemented, before the School starts at June. y It has 2 parts: y The inter-ethnic and inter-faith interaction of the out of school kids and the volunteers. y Provide a seminar about how important education is and how they can help their own community through education. y To provide students with school supplies and conduct and storytelling and seminar. Objective These are the objective of the project: y To provide students with school supplies and conduct and storytelling and seminar. y To help them understand how important education is to them to help their community and encourage them to go back to school and advocate for peace through education. y For them to interact with people from other ethnicity and religion Expected Outputs - 50 out of school kids ranging from 7-11 years old. - They are mostly Samal and Tausug.

Rationale Cabaluay is a barangay in Zamboanga City that composes of a dominant Roman Catholic populace and other Yakan and Tausug tribes of the Muslim religion. Discrimination over Muslims is natural. In fact, there is even a division of land between the two groups. At a very young age, Muslim children help their parents find a living through fishing, growing ‘agar - agar’ and making mats rather than go to school. Because of this, both the young and the adults aren’t aware of proper hygiene. Their lack of awareness beco mes a factor that causes generalization over the whole community. According to the Universal Declaration of Huma n Rights Article 2, everyone is entitled to all rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as RACE, COLOUR, SEX, LANGUAGE, RELIGION, POLITICAL or OTHER OPINION, NATIONAL or SOCIAL ORIGIN, PROPERTY, BIRTH or other STATUS. Thus, we see how entirely wrong, unlawful and inhume is the giving of generalizat ions to Islamia, the Muslim community in Cabaluay. In school, I’ve experienced how to be underestimated in terms of my capacity to do something for the institution and for my community. I want to take this as a first step towards the elimination of that pessimism over myself, a step to prove that I can do something and a step to bridge the gap between the two groups of people in my community. II. Project Description LIMPIO is a project to be headed by the Philippine Youth Leadership Program Batch 6 Alumni who are very much committed to start engaging in inter- ethnic, inter – faith and inter – generational dialogue in their respective commun ities in Zamboanga City in partnership with PAZ or the Peace Advocates of Zamboanga, an or ganization that has committed itself to the culture of peace in contrast to the culture of violence for about fourteen years now. LIMPIO will be a first step to wards establishing the culture of peace in Cabaluay through heath awareness with the theme: Clean liness is Next to Peacefulness. The said advocacy will be the concept used in minimizing labels of Muslims in Cabaluay by improving their literacy regarding proper hygiene at the same time, help or assi st the community answer it’s own needs by establishing a data – gathering body. Through this, LIMPIO will be an inspiration to organizations in Cabaluay to meddle in the affa irs of the barangay and help in answering the needs of the community. III. Objectives LIMPIO aims: • to begin and or increase awareness on pr oper hygiene and health among people in Cabaluay, Muslims and Christians alike in minimizing or eliminating generalizations • to provide an avenue where Muslims and Christians will get together 15 • to hone leadership skills and volunteerism • to pave a way to inspiring other organizations in Cabaluay to reach out to their fellow members of the community • to help the community IV. Outputs of the Project The project is expected to have the following outputs: • about 30 participant composing of 15 Muslims and 15 Christians who are more aware of proper hygiene • a complete documentation of the whole activity and compilation of the minutes of the meetings • an organized body of youth leaders compos ing of Planning, Communications and Food and Utilities Committees • an organized body of participants who will do data – gathering tasks for future projects in the community with or without the assistance of the youth leaders V. Outcomes of the Project The project is expected to have the following outcomes: • a greater awareness on proper hygiene and health of the participants • a greater empathy of Christians over the Mus lims in Cabaluay through the elimination of generalizations by bonding activities throughout the event • encouragement of organizations in Cabaluay in also doing something for the community • a greater awareness of the other problems in the community that are targeted to be solved in the coming operations VI. Project Components The project is composed of the following activities: First will be the orientation of the SGO Officers, YSP volunteers and the PYLP Batch 6 Alumni of what roles and assignments they’ll have fo r the one – day event. This will include the establishment of the three major committees that wi ll be responsible in the delegation of tasks according to categories: The Planning Committee will be the head of th e project implementation with the role of identifying fund sources, partners, activities to be involved by the participants, the proposed budget for the activity, proposed venue, logistics, security and transportation. **The Communications Committee will assume the role of networking with the partners (including the making of solicitation letters), the people involved in the programme and the canvassing of prices and materials for the conduct of the event. **The Food, Utilities and Others Committee will be assigned to buy the necessary things needed for the conduct and evaluation of the activit y and will pay the bills of utility usage in the event and the fare. 16 [**Note: the last two committees have the right to not agree and give a suggestion to the member of the Planning Committee.] Second will be the first part of the programme during the implementation stage which is the dialogue with participants including the presentati on of the mission and vision of the promotion of the culture of peace through health awaren ess. This will also include the lecture and demonstration on proper hygiene and the current status of health in the Philippines particularly in Zamboanga. Third will be the distribution of the health kit that composes of bath soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste and cologne as a way to truly exemplify the importance of proper hygiene in the prevention of the many diseases that could be acquired in our surroundings.
