Project Overview

The Accelerate Women’s Entrepreneurship for Peace and Prosperity in Sulu project is designed to contribute to improving the quality of life, increasing employment opportunities, and promoting overall stability in the Bangsamoro region. Through its partner community-based organizations, the project will provide economic opportunities to women in Sulu who most need them. The Asia Foundation and Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (HD) work with individuals and groups including former combatants, wives, and family members of former combatants, those affected by violent extremism, either directly as victims of violence, or family members of those involved in extremist groups.

The project reached a total of 288 women including 5 women with disabilities who directly benefitted from project activities. The activities were implemented in partnership with local organizations—Tumikang Sama Sama, Sinagtala center, and Matawkasi Inc. In addition, The Asia Foundation through its regional project supported by Visa Foundation, Accelerate Women’s Entrepreneurship and Access to Capital in Cambodia and the Philippines supported additional trainings on the following topics: branding and marketing, financial literacy, and Islamic Finance to Sulu women entrepreneurs. There were 196 women out of 288 Sulu women entrepreneurs participated in the said trainings.

Finally, the project co-created with the Ministry of Trade, Investments, and Tourism (MTIT) the branding and identity for Bangsamoro products. This resulted to the formal adoption of the Choose Bangsamoro brand by the MTIT as its regional brand to help promote products and identity of Bangsamoro.
