Nurturing and Transforming Spaces
for Young Filipinos to Prevent and Counter
Violent Extremism in the Philippines
Before embarking on their Panaghiusa Peace Camp journey, KRIS decided to launch a research study to explore the perspectives of the youth regarding violent extremism. The team reached out to different communities to immerse themselves in the experiences of their informants and survey participants. This analysis and findings of this study became the basis of Peace Camp and the materials that KRIS has been producing to further educate the Filipino community.
PANAGHIUSA PAGES #1
The first issue of the Panaghiusa Pages is our way of making our research paper accessible and enjoyable for our general audience. Within these Pages, you’ll find the summarized version of what we have found regarding the views of the Filipino youth on peace and the challenges it faces in our country. We think of these Pages of something one can use as a starting point in their journey towards becoming an advocate of peace.
Hello, dear reader!
Welcome to the second issue of the Panaghiusa Pages!
We hope that you have learned a lot from our first issue about violent extremism and how the Filipino youth, like you, are affected by this. To further encourage you to start your peace-building journey, we have chosen to present a few youth organizations that have chosen to do what they can to improve their own communities. We hope that you can find strength and wisdom within their stories and see how truly powerful the youth can be in changing the world for the better.
Extremely Together Philippines is thankful that you chose to pick up our second issue; we aim to gather as many Filipinos as we can to join us in promoting peace around the country. We hope that our words and lessons will be enough to inspire you to come along with us on our journey.

The last and final issue of the Panaghiusa Pages is
a compilation of some lessons we wanted to impart onto our audience as we pass
Extremely Together Philippines onto you. We urge everyone to message us on
Facebook and join our network of peace-builders. We hope that you take our
words, tips, and tricks with you as you start your own advocacy journey.
