Joji Felicitas Pantoja

Joji Pantoja is beginning to use her Tagalog tribal name -- Lakambini Mapayapa -- as a way of identifying with the struggles of the Indigenous Peoples. Joji’s initial training was in Food Service Administration from the University of Santo Tomas (B.Sc., 1979). She also studied International Relations at the Asian Center, University of the Philippines. She moved to Canada in 1986 and since then developed a successful career in the investment and financial industry. After 20 years, she decided to return to the Philippines, realizing that a sustainable economic development is crucial to our people’s search for just-peace. She believes that genuine, effective peace advocacy must be economically-sustainable. Joji is our Chief Financial Officer at PBCI. She serves concurrently as CEO of Coffee For Peace, Inc.
