Qapwa

Qapwa is a digital storytelling platform that showcases the narratives of everyday Filipinos to challenge the bias and stereotypes towards their community. To begin, we traveled all over the Philippines from Manila to Tawi-Tawi in search for 1000 stories of Muslim Filipinos and publish them online. The journey showed us the importance of taking campaigns offline and sharing our skills. That inspired us to start training young storytellers in Mindanao teaching them interviewing, basic photography, story writing and interact in their Muslim neighborhoods. At least 60% of our 84 trained storytellers are non-Muslims and some of them have never set foot in our partner Muslim neighborhoods.
