Press Release
Manila, November 22, 2019 — Deputy Chief of Mission John Law traveled to Cotabato to launch a new Countering Violent Extremism partnership with local government units and civil society.  He also met with BARMM officials to discuss U.S. support for the Bangsamoro Transitional Authority, totaling nearly Php 1 billion ($18.7 million).

The new CONVERGE Program supports local government units, researchers, and civil society organizations to reduce the drivers of violent extremism and increase community resilience to radicalization.  CONVERGE is funded with Php 86 million from the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Conflict and Stabilization Operations and implemented in partnership with The Asia Foundation through local implementers Kadtuntaya Foundation, Inc. (KFI), Integrated Resource Development for Tri-People, Inc.,  and Nagdilaab Foundation, Inc.

DCM Law also reaffirmed the U.S. government’s commitment to democratic governance and health in the Bangsamoro during visits to two ongoing U.S. Agency for International Development projects.

•USAID’s more than Php101 million FORWARD Bangsamoro project, implemented in partnership with The Asia Foundation, supports the Bangsamoro Transition Authority to bolster effective and accountable local governance.

•USAID’s more than Php760 million health project, implemented at the request of BARMM Ministry of Health and in collaboration with the University Research Co, LLC, will implement programs to help save the lives of mothers and newborns and improve families’ quality of life.

These projects build upon more than two decades of U.S. development assistance and investment to the Bangsamoro.

A person who can't submit to authority has no business being in authority.
