Project Pagbangon is the post-disaster initiative of PMPI, which initially started as a relief effort to support November 2013 Typhoon Yolanda hit partner communities of member organizations in Panay and Easter Visayas clusters. 

PMPI already had partner community organizations in both clusters under the anti-mining campaigns: Protect Manicani Island Society Inc. (PROMISI) and Homonhon Environmental Rescuers Organization (HERO).

Originally, the main objective of the project was to secure the welfare of the affected communities, with perspective to help in the early phase of the islands. Since PMPI is a development network the project evolved into an island development initiative. PMPI focused on five areas of assessment and tapped various partner organizations to produce researches and actual reintegration efforts.


What Members Are Doing & Saying

Here in PMPI, of more than 200 NGOs, POs, and church organizations working for development, we have a great way of trying to exchange ideas to strengthen one another. The synergy in our work for development is what PMPI partners are really proud of.

Malaking bagay ang PMPI partnership dahil marami tayong kasama at kaakabay. Marami tayong mga ka-kapitbisig sa ating mga adbokasiya lalo na sa human rights, peace, climate change, sustainable agriculture at anti-mining. Malaking bagay kung hindi tayo nag-iisa. Malaking bagay kung ma-compliment ang iba’t ibang kakayahan, at resources ng mga miyembro ng PMPI, kasama na ang mga partners and allied organizations ng iba’t ibang partner members.

What I appreciate about the PMPI as a development conversation platform that it fills in the gap in the church especially among church development organizations. I’m talking in particular about Diocesan Social Action Centers because after the social teachings of the church, the development world has already went ahead in terms of theory and practice and the church’s work in development hasn’t really for the last few years. Organizations such as this, partnerships like PMPI, is a welcome development for the development sector of the church in the Philippines.

Iyong partnership ay nakatulong o magandang stratehiya sa pagpi-pressure sa government sa isyu ng climate change, sa usapin na pangkapayapaan at sa anti- mining. Ito rin ay nagbibigay daan upang ang ating mga kasamahan sa kalunsuran ay magbigay din ng supporta at the same time tumataas din 'yung kanilang kamalayan sa isyu ng mga nasa kanayunan.

Mahalaga ito sa amin (PMPI partnership) kasi for the past years we have been working for the support for the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro and the passage of the Bangsamoro Basic Law which would put in place the governance structure for the right of the Bangsamoro people to self-governance and self- determination. Ito din ang isang paraan para matama yung historical injustice.

National Coordinator PILIPINA, Inc.
We have reached the point in PMPI where there is a good level of trust and confidence among partners and from partners to the Secretariat. I think this is another strength of the network nowadays, which was groomed over many years and which helped the network to do what they want to do and to remain to be relevant to the Philippines today.
