Latest News List AdZU launches PEACEPATHS, empowers IP communities

The Ateneo de Zamboanga University, through its Center for Community Extension Services and Ateneo Center for Leadership and Governance, ties up with Assisi Development Foundation Incorporation (ADFI) to launch PEACEPATHS, a program empowering local Indigenous Peoples (IP) communities.

PEACEPATHS or Partnership for Economic and Cultural Enhancement of Peoples Actions Towards Harmony and Self-determination will enable IP communities to claim, promote, and exercise their rights to peace and development within their territories.

The program was launched in simple ceremonies last October 10, 2017 at the Sauras Hall of the AdZU Salvador Campus. In attendance were University President Fr Karel San Juan, SJ, who gave the welcome message; ADFI President Benjamin Abadiano, National Commission on Indigenous People (NCIP) Regional Director Henrico Gumibao, and Executive Assistant on Barangay Affairs Arturo Onrubia.  Also present were the Chieftains and Leaders of the Subanon and Sama Bangingi Tribes.

During the launch, trainees-students and facilitators who will run the program were introduced, and the IP LEAD concept and framework presented by Peace Advocacy Officer Ruth Guerrero.

IP LEAD or the Indigenous Peoples Leadership Education and Advocacy for Development is a key component of the PEACEPATHS program that targets to capacitate IP leaders as they take the lead in the planning, implementation, and management of peace and development initiatives in their ancestral domains. This component will involve a series of IP Leaders’ Assemblies, providing them a venue to share their leadership journeys as they acquire relevant knowledge and skills in pursuing peace and development initiatives in their areas.                           

PEACEPATHS is set to be implemented in four Subanon and Sama Bangingi communities in Sitio Masalag-Latap barangay Limpapa, Sitio Campo Uno barangay Labuan, Sitio Monte Central barangay Patalon, and Simariki Island barangay Talon-Talon. This will be implemented in partnership with Indigenous Peoples Organizations in six (6) pilot ancestral domain sites in Mindanao.
