our Story...

development NGO networks.  

Its formation was facilitated by the Mindanao Regional Committee (MRC) of the
PCJC-HRD.  Having drawn inspiration from the emerging coalition of the national
networks, the PCJC-MRD organized series of exploratory conferences and
consultations which involved other networks of Mindanao NGOs.  The process
became the venue for dialogues the sentiment and the need for collaboration and
consolidation earlier expressed by the representatives of the networks.

The coalition was formed by Mindanao NGOs and POs in response to the need to
unify on a common perspective after two decades of working for people’s
development.  Through its activities, the members found common ground to
address the issues affecting the people particularly the poor in Mindanao.
