COTABATO CITY — The Bangsamoro Ministry of Basic, Higher and Technical Education (MBHTE) has been distributing armchairs to the various schools in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).

Headed by Minister Mohagher M. Iqbal, the MBHTE, one of the 15 primary government organs of the BARMM, has a tall responsibility as the regional autonomy is comprised of mainland and island provinces. In turn, the island provinces is comprised of island municipalities that are difficult to reach.

But apparently, the education ministry has been up to the challenge, reaching out to the hard-to-reach communities.

Today, March 9, Iqbal’s office announced more MBHTE-designed armchairs were distributed to four schools which got 80 units each. They are:

  • 1. Ocsio Memorial Elementary School
  • 2. Picong National High School
  • 3. Punong Elementary School
  • 4. Malabang Central Elementary School
Earlier, the MBHTE joined the celebration of the International Women’s Day which is celebrated every 8th of March annually.’
The celebration was conducted in the Special Geographic Area (SGA) in Pigcawayan, North Cotabato. SGA is comprised of 63 barangays or villages which are under the governance jurisdiction of the Bangsamoro government after its voters chose to say “Yes” to Bangsamoro” in the February 2019 plebiscite.
