But still the one who invited the guest should be responsible

detailed advisory. Ask Rhea for a kit for our guidelines

the issue in Mindanao is a worldwide issue. The focus of the four organizations for peace is in Mindanao. Pray for the success of MinPI

Grace Mayo should be responsible for the youth leader Christopher

somebody suggested to add Peace Education on the Curriculum. Mr. Balili suggested to integrated since it will mean additional cost on the part of the students. But Dr. Babano commented that integration will parrot the peace initiative. 3 units is not even enough to advocate culture of peace. Change is does not happened overnight or one GPF only. Teacher itself should not only talk about peace for compliance only but think and act as well. It should be a mandate to be effective.

Dr. Zablan said the event was over all success but there was a need for evaluation to strengthen our capability

Councilor Raul Caballero of Nabunturan was given a privilege speech and he reported his achievement in Nabunturan as peace advocacy. According to him, because of the tragic killing of a barangay councilor and attempt to burn the house of a barangay captain, this barangay captain went to the mayor hopeless and scared and wanted to resign. The mayor told him you can’t do anything because they are already there. The military pressured him to lead the Alsa Masa but he was afraid that the NPA will kill him. But when the Barangay Capitan happened to confine his problem to our good councilor Honorable Raul Caballero. He instructed the Capitan to gather his constituent, purok leaders, kagawad, religious leaders all sectoral leaders. A one-day Seminar for Peace Principle was conducted, speaker was Dr. Joseph Navalta. Even the military in charge there was inspired by the topic` that they requested for a seminar too. They were amazed because of the common ideas of peace principle. UPF, Military, and barangay leaders work together for the education of the barangay leaders and constituents.

21 days education, parade, tree planting, community service and peace rally was conducted. Before this barangay is consider a war zone but now a Model Barangay for Peace. According to Councilor Caballero that since he started already a peace movement in Nabunturan why not consider to establish MinPi and call it SoMinPI (Southern Mindanao Peace Initiative). so in Caraga CarMinPI (Caraga Mindanao Peace Initiative)
