Interfaith Partnership in Emergency & Development Programming

World Vision – December 2020

In 2000, World Vision in the Philippines (known as World  Vision Development Foundation) started its Mindanao Peacebuilding programme. This engagement led to the creation of the Mindanao Interfaith Dialogue. Among its stated  purposes was to support social cohesion through initiatives promoting peace and tolerance, bringing communities closer together. As part of the Mindanao peacebuilding programme, a forum of faith leaders in Zamboanga City was established as a space for interfaith dialogue and collaboration. Zamboanga Amores Interfaith (Amores) was legally registered as a non-profit entity in 2011.
