RMO-BDA-CenMin holds VTT, enlightens CCSPC OJT students

The Values Transformation Training (VTT) conducted by the Regional Management Office of Bangsamoro Development Agency-Central Mindanao (RMO-BDA-CenMin) inspired the on-the-job-training (OJT) students of Bachelor of Science in Social Work of Cotabato City State Polytechnic College (CCSPC) held at its session hall on December 28-30, 2015.

Lailanie A. Sali, one of the OJT students said, "VTT enlightens us not just in terms of the values but the wisdom it contains through the embodying knowledge about Islam."

"VTT appropriately guided us in our daily lives to become successful in this world and most especially in the day hereafter," Sali also said.

"The knowledge imparted to us through VTT is very helpful in rebuilding a strong Muslim Ummah because we believe that Islam is the only solution to the prevailing problem of mankind that will redound to permanent peace and justice," Sali further said.    

Esmael M. Utto, one of the OJT students said, "VTT helps me a lot in transforming my values in line with the teachings of the Qur'an and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him (PBUH)."

"Through VTT, I learned the Five Pillars of Islam and Six Articles of Faith," Utto said.

"Because of this learning, I thank the facilitators for their effective facilitation and the RMO of BDA-CenMin for conducting this VTT," emphasized Utto.

Moreover, Ansari E. Haron, another OJT student said, "VTT is a big help for me because I learned a lot about Islam."

"Although I have knowledge about Islam, but it increases because of VTT," added Haron. 

Regional Manager Hashim B. Manticayan of the BDA-CenMin in his message emphasized the importance of VTT in transforming the values of the participants from the effects of secular and colonial modernization.

Manticayan explained that the real concept of development in order to guarantee lasting peace and prosperity is that moral and spiritual development must prevail over material things. 

The VTT was participated in by the 23 OJT students.

VTT is a regular activity of the RMO for OJT students from different schools in Cotabato City and nearby localities in order to help them transform their values, for the better and develop their personalities to become more productive to the community and society where they belong.
