MILF-JTFCT urges BDA to work harder for another stage of B’Moro journey

In a meeting hosted by the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA), a senior officer of the Moro Islamic Liberation Joint Front – Task Force for Camps Transformation has urged the agency’s development workers to perform their responsibilities as expected of them in a message delivered last July 18 here at Cotabato City.

Uz. Zacaria Guma, Chairman of the JTFCT at Camp Omar also told the Camp Project Support Team (CPST) of BDA and their partners to exert extra effort in order to fulfill their duties required of them as catalysts of change towards peace and development in the Bangsamoro communities while striving to be as efficient and sincere as possible in their given tasks.

“What we are doing now is just a small portion of what we need to undertake in the future as we face another stage of the Bangsamoro journey towards peace and development in our respective areas”, Guma articulated in his closing message addressing the co-members of the JTFCT, BDA CPST and key staff of the Community and Family Services International (CFSI) and BDA – Central Management Office.

The JTFCT meeting is part of BDA strategies to cull out learnings, polish related concerns and resolve pressing issues regarding the on-going implementation of the Mindanao Trust Fund – Reconstruction and Development Project Phase II (MTFRDP/2) attended by representatives from key partners such as the JTFCT, BDA CPST and office staff and the CFSI.

MTF-RDP/2 is part of the continuing effort of BDA together with partners to help uplift the living condition of its people thru access to basic socio-economic infrastructure and alternative learning system.

MTFRDP/2 targets selected communities in the six major camps of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) namely Camp Bushra, Camp Bilal, Camp Abubakar as-Siddique, Camp Rajamuda, Camp Badre and Camp Omar.

This intervention is comprised of engaging the communities through a community-driven development and alternative learning system with an end in view of making those productive, participative and peaceful communities. Moreover, this is in line with the Normalization Aspect of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB).

BDA is the project-implementing unit (PIU) while the CFSI is the trust fund recipient.

Funds for the projects come from the Mindanao Trust Fund (MTF) with various donors such as European Union, the government of Sweden, Australia, Canada, United States, New Zealand and the World Bank, which also serves as Trust Fund Administrator and Secretariat.

The Spanish Agency for International Cooperation in the Philippines (AECID) is also supporting the project.
