Families of Victims of Involuntary Disappearance

Rediscovering Local Strengths, Exploring Possibilities

Proposed by the Families of Victims of Involuntary Disappearance (FIND), a nationwide organization with provincial-chapter membership, aims to explore and address financial sustainability issues that have been confronting the organization for the past five years. The proposed action includes the identification of local chapters and available resources, including domestic and local resources, and planning on how to best access such resources to support the organization’s priorities and programs.

Fresh New Leaf

FINDing Strength Within: Cultivating Self-Reliance, One Chapter at a Time

Imagine a network of communities across the Philippines, each bursting with untapped potential, ready to chart their own paths to a brighter future. This is the vision driving FIND, an organization fearlessly tackling financial sustainability head-on through a revolutionary approach: Community-Led Action.


Empowering Voices, Unleashing Potential:

Their journey unfolds in two empowering steps:

The Symphony of Transformation:

The impact resonates in a chorus of positive change:

  • Confidence Takes Root: Chapters blossom with belief in their ability to create and achieve, their voices amplified and heard.

  • Replication's Song: The success story spreads, inspiring other chapters to embark on their own journeys of self-discovery and action.

  • Collaboration's Harmony: Bridges are built with government agencies, unlocking a wealth of resources and services previously unseen.

  • Rights Reclaimed: The narrative shifts from aid-seeking to rights-claiming, empowering communities to demand their rightful place at the table.

The story thrives beyond mere statistics:

  • 189 voices rise, sharing their wisdom and hopes for a brighter future.

  • 8 mini-proposals bloom, each a testament to a community's unique vision.

  • 247 members actively participate, exceeding expectations and igniting a movement.

Shared Learnings, Shared Success:

This journey is paved with valuable lessons:

  • Mandang Chapter's tale: Youth step up, taking on leadership roles and crafting proposals, demonstrating the power of intergenerational collaboration.

  • Zamboanga chapters rediscover unity: Revitalized meetings and proactive engagement with government agencies showcase the strength of collective action.

  • Flexibility unlocks potential: FIND embraces flexible funding, recognizing that sometimes the best solutions don't fit neatly into rigid boxes.

By supporting their work, you become part of a movement fostering self-reliance, igniting collaboration, and ensuring that every voice is heard, every resource valued, and every community finds its own unique path to a brighter future.
