The United Youth for Peace and Development (UNYPAD) is a Muslim Youth Organisation which aims to develop young leaders who can eventually contribute to the society. They equip young people with the knowledge, skills and technology so that they become members of the society who can promote unity and solidarity, transparency and accountability. It is a partner in the present PEaCE for Good Governance project, working in six barangays in the municipalities of Pagalungan and Parang in Maguindanao.

UNYPAD’s Deputy Secretary General is Datuan Magon who is a strong believer of peaceful approaches to violence in his region. Throughout the years, he has been focusing on the “Reawakening of the Bangsamoro People” by organizing young individuals to become members of UNYPAD.

UNYPAD conducts humanitarian and peace building work by developing trusted relationships across all people where conflict divides. Datuan has also been very active in engaging with different working groups to ensure that everyone is united as they all focus on community security.
