With support from key stakeholders for the Mindanao Trust Fund – Reconstruction and Development Project II (MTF-RDP/2), the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA) and the Community and Family Services International (CFSI) vowed to give their best effort in working together as one team to ensure that project deliverables are met and properly implemented.
“As one family, we are bound to work as one team so that our beneficiaries receive the services they really deserve”, said Engr. Nasser Sinarimbo, CFSI-based Project Coordinator.
Should there be any concern, we have to discuss it as gentlemen, he added as he addressed both BDA and CFSI colleagues in a gathering last week at the Center for Excellence and Humanitarian Service.
Meanwhile, Tawab Kararon, BDA Community Development Officer under MTF-RDP/2 and concurrent Regional Manager of RMO – Basilan reminded his colleagues on the importance of a meaningful assessment which can serve as guiding light towards the improvement of the concerned groups.
As what our Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) told us: “We also need to take account of what we do and be guided thereby before somebody else makes an assessment of us”, Kararon stated.
Lucman Tandalong, also a CDO and concurrent RMO Davao – Regional Manager said that they are enlightened as a result of this activity which provides them learnings and guidance as they move along the path of developing the target communities.
Mohammad Saud Alon, BDA Rural Infrastructure Engineer II, expressed strong support to the team saying that ”we get the chance to reflect and act thru this reflection session” thus guided by those reflections generated, he added they will make it God willing through despite some challenges that may arise particularly on the technical engineering works. He attributed any success to ‘because we are working together’.
BDA and CFSI conduct regular partners’ meeting as well as reflection workshops at the end of every month for the MTF-RDP/2 to ensure that work schedules, project deliverables among others are within specified timeline as agreed.
