UVPN participated in the Governance Masterclass in Bangsamoro, facilitated by ACTED in collaboration with Tyakap Kalilintad and AUSSIE Firm.

UVPN was part of Batch 2 – Peace and Security, a Masterclass organized by ACTED, featuring Atty. Naguie G. Ibrahim, RN, SH.C. as the lecturer and Mr. Bong B. Lumabao, LPT, Ph.D., as the Guest Speaker. The attendees included representatives from AFP, CIDG/PNP, Reservists Group across Maguindanao, and NGOs/CSOs.

The Masterclass covered crucial topics such as the basics of democracy and its special relationship with Islamic teachings, parliamentary doctrines, Bangsamoro Organic Law, and the rule of law. This initiative aimed to significantly broaden the participants’ understanding of these subjects. Mr. Bong B. Lumabao shared insightful Bangsamoro stories and showcased a documentary featuring the late Grand Mufti of BARMM, Sheik Abu Huraira Udasan, and Member of the Parliament, Abdullah Gayak. The documentary highlighted the Bangsamoro struggle and its current milestones, narrated through the experiences of former combatants who successfully transitioned to peaceful and progressive civilian lives.

Mahatma Sangcala, UVPN’s LEB Manager, was featured in a documentary video of Batch 2 – Peace and Security. As the program concluded, participants left enlightened and empowered after the enlightening 3-day lecture. It was not only a departure day but also a day of significant impact for all involved.
