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.
