peoples are respected of their inalienable rights to
self-determination, co-exist harmoniously and live with prosperity
The members of the Consortium are bounded by the following

The Consortium is a solidarity conference of non-government
organizations and people's organizations (NGOs/POs) of and for the
Bangsamoro. This was organized to respond to the need of strengthening
and enhancing the capabilities of the Moro NGOs/POs Advocacy
Campaign for Peace and Development.
The Consortium serves as a mechanism of cooperation, coordination and
sharing among the civil society groups with operation mostly
concentrated but not limited to ARMM areas where the Bangsamoro are
sizeable in terms of population and presence.
The Consortium was organized in 2004 but takes more active
participation in advocacy work after it had identified leaders and
organizations who are willing to commit themselves for the job ahead. It
had also finalized its structure and elected their officers in an assembly
in general Santos City as well as finalization of their initial program.
Institutionalization of civil society among the Moro groups is an important
component in order to empower the NGOs/POs to take more proactive role
in Peace and Development for the Bangsamoro. The activities involve
program development, training and program support through technical and
financial resource mobilization, vis-a-vis:
- Resource mobilization and sharing

- Peace and development of Bangsamoro people and homeland.
