Ex-combatants in BARMM complete UNDP peace training

24 former combatants completed the facilitators' training for the School of Peace and Democracy - Bangsamoro

Twenty-four former combatants have completed the facilitators' training for the School of Peace and Democracy (SPD) - Bangsamoro held last week.

The 24 participants were base commanders, officers and trainers from the North Eastern Mindanao Front (Lanao del Sur) of the Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces (BIAF) of Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). They were trained and capacitated with skills that will help them transition to civilian life. This is one of the most crucial components of normalization and peace processes in the Bangsamoro Region.

The participants were trained by the first batch of SPD graduates and they are expected to cascade their learning as new community facilitators in their camps.

The SPD is part of the START-Peace Project of UNDP Philippines with support from the Australia in The Philippines.
