Welcome To Our Website.

PMPI is a network of more than 250 social development and advocacy groups — NGOs, POs, the Church’s Social Action Centers or Pastoral programs of Congregations — working for sustainable development, peace, and integrity of creation.

PMPI was formally established on March 13-14, 2003 during its first National Assembly held at the Subic Bay International Hotel, SBMA, Olongapo City

PMPI is legally registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission on 20 January 2004. The network was formed as a result of series of consultations among organizations supported by Misereor which discussed a model of cooperation, coordination and partnership between these Philippine social development organizations and Misereor.

On 24 June 2015, we published a press release entitled “Eastern Visayas youth speaks against mining violence” concerning an incident that took place in Eastern Samar on 22 June 2015 involving Hinatuan Mining Corporation (“HMC”) and certain residents and fisherfolk of the area. In said article, we made the following statement:

Something is to be said when a mining firm intentionally ran over small boats of the fisherfolks of Manicani of the second time. The first was only last December, with similar intent; to haul heavy equipment into the island and continue their mining operation.

The above-quoted paragraph was based on reports from one of our local partner organizations, the Save Manicani Movement (“SAMAMO”), together with the residents of the area. It was not intended to be conclusion of fact. Further, any confusion on its interpretation is not intentional.

With that said, we remain firm and steadfast in our commitment to support the advocacy and common action against the negative impacts of mining. We will continue to pursue our purpose of providing a platform for dialogue and common action for our partners in various regions of the Phillipines.

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.
Beth Yang
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.
