“Ito kasi, iyong paniniwala namin, na kahit anong problema, kahit anong gustong gawin, mas mahahanap iyong mga solusyon na mas maganda at mas mabuti kapag mas inclusive saka mas participative iyong proseso,” she said.

(This is our belief, that any problem, or whatever we want to do, it would be easier and better to find solutions if the process is more integrated, inclusive, and participative.)

“So ito, isang paraan para pakinggan iyong boses ng mga kabataan. Binibigyan sila ng, parang, feeling na kahit bata pa sila, mayroon na silang maiko-contribute sa paghanap ng solusyon, sa finding peace,” Robredo added.

(This is one way to listen to the voices of the youth. They are being given the feeling that even if they are still young, they can contribute to finding solutions to achieving peace.)

The Vice President recognized the role of the youth in promoting peace during the awarding ceremonies of Angat Buhay Youth Peace Advocates Summit held in Quezon City. Angat Buhay is Robredo’s flagship anti-poverty program.

Robredo then cited the projects pitched by the various youth organizations to promote peace as an example. Twelve youth groups won P25,000 each and were given certificates.

The five-day summit gathered a total of 31 youth groups under three main components: Peace Education Bootcamp, Project Refinement Workshops, and the Grant Competition.

This was the third edition of the Angat Buhay Youth Peace Summit organized by Robredo’s office. The others were held in Cagayan de Oro City and Cotabato City, Robredo said.

The lady official highlighted the importance of the summit for the voices of the youth to be heard.

“This has become their sanctuary, where they would feel many of us share the same aspirations and we can help each other,” Robredo said in Filipino.

The 12 winners in the youth peace summit were Federation of Elementary Educators, Qapwa Philippines, Kalilintad sa Lanao, Alliance of Magnanimous Young Leaders, United Youth Action Group, and Lakas Kabataan Maguindanao.

Also included were University of San Agustin-Augustinian Communicators Guild, Batang Transformers LDS Chapter, Partido Sang Mainuswagon Nga Bumulutho, Adtudtulata, Moro Student Civic Organization, and Volunteer Initiatives in Bridging and Empowering Society.

The Office of the Vice President organized the summit with the Teach Peace Build Peace Movement, J. Amado Araneta Foundation, in partnership with the Office on Bangsamoro Youth Affairs, and the United Voices for Peace Network.
