In support of the 2014 Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro, the Mindanao Trust Fund is providing community development and livelihood assistance to about 68,527 beneficiariesin the Six Acknowledged MILF Camps. Beneficiaries are Muslims, Christians, Indigenous Peoples, as well as vulnerable groups (women, out-of-school youth, and persons with disabilities) in 31 barangays.
A block grant of PhP15 million per camp is downloaded to communities to fund livelihood and community-based projects designed to promote socioeconomic recovery. Communities are capacitated to identify, plan, and implement projects that will increase income and improve access to basic services. These projects range from pre- and post harvest farming facilities and equipment, water systems, bridges, as well as livelihood support such as cattle-raising and dressmaking. The Alternative Learning System (ALS) program is also provided to selected vulnerable groups such as widows and out-of-school youth to increase their chances for employment.
Community and Family Services International (CFSI) leads the program management and coordination on the ground with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).
