COTABATO CITY—The Ministry of Human Settlement and Development (MHSD) is set to construct five training centers in the region which will allow the BARMM to reach a wider range of sectors in society.
MHSD Minister Atty. Hamid Aminoddin Barra stated during the contract signing with contractors on May 8 that the new training centers will help the regional government reach beyond just housing projects.
“The construction of these training centers will enable us to reach more or other sectors of the society aside from the housing projects,” Barra said.
Funds for the said training centers were sourced from the Transitional Development Impact Fund (TDIF) of MP Barra, MP Romeo Sema, and MP Mudjib Abu, and former MP Punduma Sani.
The initiative comprises one two-story multi-purpose youth training center in Marawi City, Lanao Del Sur and four one-story multi-purpose human development training centers in Cotabato City, Sultan Kudarat, Buadipuso Buntong, and Marawi City.
“We are not just accountable to the Bangsamoro, but to the Filipino and the Philippine National Government as a whole, and ultimately, to Allah SWT. We hope we can work together, and we hope this will not be the end, but the beginning of working together for the Filipino people, for the Bangsamoro people,” Barra stressed.
During the contract signing, the partner contractors pledged to ensure the project’s timely completion and quality. (Abdullah Matucan/BIO)
