In a bid to come up with validated data for its program implementation, the Monitoring and Evaluation Officers (MEOs) of the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA) Tahderiyyah Program underwent a 3-day Wata Cleaning workshop held at the Waterfront Hotel at Davao City last week (Apr 20-22).

The MEOs, coming from the seven regional offices of BDA, said the workshop was aimed to validate the number of completers and to track the status of the program which is now in the Phase 3.

Tahderriyyah Program has been implemented by BDA since 2008 in partnership with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the Government of Australia. 

It provides balanced education to young Moro children that imparts the values and teachings of Islam while developing the learning competencies of young children to make them school ready.

Figures from BDA states there is a total of 3,258 enrollees in 52 private Madaris of the ARMM which piloted the program for school year 2016-2017. Of these, 13 have received financial assistance from the Department of Education.

Part of the interventions provided by BDA Tahderiyyah were consultations with the Madaris operators, assisting the Madrasah management in consulting with parents and LGUs, providing training and assisting in compliance with regulatory requirements of DepEd for accreditation as private Madrasah.

BDA also facilitated training on school leadership and management for the principals and training of teachers on reading, science, math, Tahderiyyah Curriculum, instructional practices and lessom plan development.

The partners also provided teaching materials and conducted joint monitoring visits. 

DepEd has issued Memorandum No. 36 of 2013 recognizing the Tahderiyyah Curriculum in BDA operated Islamic community schools.

BDA was created in 2002. It is the economic arm of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.
