We are a national peasant confederation and movement dedicated to the empowerment of the Filipino small farmers, fishers, rural women, youth, and indigenous peoples leading in the advocacy and implementation of sustainable agrarian and aquatic reform and rural development. It also promotes the equality of men and women, and responds to the present and historical problem of poverty and injustice.
PAKISAMA’s strategy has two main components: Federation building focuses on strengthening members’ internal capacities to effectively participate in agrarian reform and rural development implementation, including improving their operational, financial and organizational systems. Connected with this task PAKISAMA focuses on strengthening two of its sectoral organizations: the rural women groups (LAKAMBINI-PAKISAMA) and fisherfolk groups (MAMAMYAN-PAKISAMA). Its second strategy involves conceptualizing and promoting, among all its members throughout the country, a sustainable integrated development as a development framework.
