Following the recently concluded implementation support mission (ISM) which was participated in by different development partners, the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA) organized a planning workshop on October 9, 2018 at BDA Training Centre, Cotabato City.
This is to ensure that it keeps an eye on what needs to be delivered for the succeeding month/s of project implementation under the Mindanao Trust Fund – Reconstruction and Development Project Phase II (MTF-RDP/2) whose engagement period started last April 2018 and will run until April 2019.
In a message, BDA executive director Mohammad S. Yacob reminded the staff about the importance of planning ahead.
“We should be steps ahead of what is yet to come”, he stressed.
A believer should be wary of not making his days just like the previous days – referring to the significance of always finding means to improve on one’s ability and competence in doing his duties and responsibilities, he added.
BDA staff and management attended the activity in support to the mission of making quality service to the Bangsamoro communities.
The planning involves preparation of community activities that will be conducted at the community levels among others.
MTFRDP/2 is a program partnership signed between the BDA and the Community and Family Services International (CFSI) which aim is to improve access of targeted communities in the conflict-affected areas in Mindanao to basic socio-economic infrastructure and alternative learning system.
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 CAB.
MTFRDP/2 is supported by the Mindanao Trust Fund (MTF) with various donors such as the 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 Cooperation Agency for International Development (AECID) is also supporting the project.
