#Project Pagbangon is the ongoing post-disaster initiative of PMPI, which initially started as a relief effort to support partner communities of member organizations in Panay and Eastern Samar. Even before Typhoon Yolanda hit the country in November 2013, PMPI already had partner community organizations in both islands under their anti-mining campaigns: Save Manicani Movement (SAMAMO) and Homonhon Environmental Rescuers Organization (HERO). Initially, the main objective of the project is to secure the survival of the affected communities, with the perspective to help in the early recovery phase of the islands. Since PMPI is a development network the project evolved into an island development initiative. PMPI focused on five areas for assessment and tapped its partner organizations to produced researches that would put Project Pagbangon unto its feet.

As of the moment, 6 PMPI partner organization are taking part in the execution of Project Pagbangon:
