Advancing Peace and Stability in Mindanao
September 12, 2017

Mindanao and the Sulu Archipelago comprise one-quarter of the Philippines’ total population and hold significant potential for economic growth; however, instability—brought about by poverty, marginalization and conflict—has impeded development in many areas throughout the region. USAID partners with national and local governments and civil society to address the root causes of these challenges. By enhancing governance and civic engagement, improving access to quality social services, protecting life-sustaining natural resources and expanding economic opportunities—especially among youth in the most vulnerable communities—USAID is helping make way for families and communities throughout the region to pursue a more stable future.

At USAID, we believe that gender equality and women’s empowerment isn’t a part of development, but the core of development, fundamental to achieving our sustainable development goals.

For societies to thrive, women and girls must have access to education, healthcare and technology. They must have opportunities to control resources, lands and markets. And they must have equal rights and equal opportunities as breadwinners, peace-builders and leaders. When women and girls reach their full potential, no matter what field they may be in, they can become powerful exponents for uplifting their families, their communities and their nation, thereby building a stronger Philippines and ASEAN.
