Members of the camp project support team (CPST) of the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA) responsible for implementation of the MTFRDP/2 recently convened on June 29-30, 2019 at Pagana Resto Cotabato City for the Internal Reflection and Writeshop that aimed to collect and consolidate narratives, data and information from the team for the development of the quarter and completion report of the project.
Signed in April 2018 between BDA and CFSI, MTFRDP/2 is expected to end in August 2019.
“We did this activity as part of our preparation for the writing of the project completion report”, Rhadzni Taalim, BDA program coordinator said.
He said that the participation of the CPST is very relevant in the completion of the report because they were directly involved in the implementation of the project.
“They were those who worked at the community level, meeting the stakeholders from different sectors and facilitated activities in line with project execution, so they can better tell how it went and performed,” Taalim stated.
Part of the activity was essay writing for the internal reflection, identification of best stories, best photos and among others.
“Through this workshop and sharing, we were able to determine success stories that would be essential part of the whole project report. It is our objective to really give justice to all the efforts of our CPST in delivering all the activities intended for the project”, Taalim told.
The Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation (PME) Team of BDA also presented and discussed to the participants the data and information needed to be updated and complied for the completion report.
Key staff of BDA for the MTFRDP/2 also joined the activity like Julhaina Cadon, finance head; Engr. Rahib Labay, PME head; Rhadzni Taalim, project coordinator; rural infrastructure engineers (RIE-II) who were Engr. Amil Kali, Engr. Mohammad Saud Alon, and Engr. Cosain Batuampar; learning and development staff Swaib Mohammad and Mohammad Alon; and personnel from admin division.
