UnYPhil is a non-profit women-youth organisation. After its creation in 1990, UnYPhil developed chapters both in Luzon and Mindanao. It was only in 2004 that a separate chapter in Mindanao was registered under the name of UnYPhil-Women based in Cotabato City.
The primary goal of UnYPhil-Women is to provide assistance to women who are subjected to violence, sexual and physical abuses, trafficking and other forms of discrimination. Specifically, UnYPhil-Women aims to: promote and advocate the rights of women and their protection against violence; encourage women’s participation in nation and peace building; empower women through education, capacity building and livelihood assistance and inculcate self-esteem and self worth among women through confidence and social integration.
