Recent studies have focused on the role of aid in financing social reform and community development programs in the Philippine rural areas. This study contributes to this literature by demonstrating how British donors, implementing agencies, and local civil society organization partners facilitated the British-funded Activate Bangsamoro 1 project. This initiative aims to inform and engage voting-age citizens in Bangsamoro Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao in the Philippines regarding their newly established parliament, its powers, and structures. Further, it presents various opportunities for active citizenry under the new parliamentary system.

Drawing on Michel Foucault's governmentality, the paper scrutinizes processes and interactions within the management stages of the social reform and community development project. It examines the impact of the completed project among youth stakeholders. It argues that while the social reform and community development project fostered mutual understanding and beneficial relationships among civil society organizations, local politicians accrued more significant advantages. Consequently, the youth stakeholders clamor for further support to maximize project benefits.
