The participants are mostly students and are chosen through a rigorous selection process that begins in about early October each a year. The conference is typically held at the end of our college term during end of May every year.

Testimonials

 

"IFP has triggered in me a mindset to commit and take action. I learned how to become a catalyst in my own university, community, and country through leading numerous student organisations that promote leadership, peace and diversity." 

Dorothy Helena Dulnoan, 2014 Conference Participant

 

 

 

"Through IFP, I learned that intolerance to diversity is the root cause of the conflict in the Mindanao region. The most dangerous situation for a society is the absence of diversity. Through IFP, I learnt that understanding our cultural differences and respecting one another is what is necessary for a peaceful and harmonious community."

Ryan Ahmad, 2014 Conference Participant
