With an end to improve management of the orphanage for the children they are taking care of, staff of the Moro Orphanage Complex worked together recently for evaluation and planning on January 2-3, 2019 at the said institution located at Tamontaka 1, Cotabato City.
According to Ustadza Anisa Taha, orphanage director, the purpose of the activity was for every staff to learn and develop further their capacities in managing the orphanage for the welfare of the children.
“I wish for them to learn more, I let them share their stories of their childhood, the way they were raised so that they can compare and apply as they perform their tasks in looking after the orphans”, Ustadza Taha said.
During the activity, participants were grouped based on their designated roles e.g. laundry worker, cook, in-house officer, distant orphan officer, health officer and among others.
Each group were asked to evaluate their current practice of performing their duties, and determine what they think can improve their works.
Omer Kesmen of the Insani Yardim Vakfi (IHH), the organization sponsoring the orphanage also graced the activity and spoke about the history of their foundation.
Accordingly, IHH is supporting orphans worldwide because they believe that it is the children losing their parents who are the most affected in times of difficulties e.g. war.
Also during the activity, Ustadza Anisa shared that they presented awards to outstanding employees who were Ustadz Buhari Lintang, Judith Adam and Aisa Kanakan.
At present, there are 120 female orphans housed at the Moro Orphanage Complex.
The institution is run and managed with the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA) as local partner and the IHH as donor partner.
