COTABATO CITY – The Ministry of Basic, Higher and Technical Education (MBHTE) of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (MBHTE-BARMM) through the Directorate General for Madaris Education on Tuesday, July 26, granted P109,195,000 financial subsidy to 21,839 learners in 117 implementers of Standard Madrasah Curriculum (SMC) in the BARMM.

This was disclosed to Luwaran by Tahir Nalg, the MBHTE’s Director-General for Madaris Education.

In a statement posted on its official Facebook Page, the MBHTE said “the financial assistance will help public and private madaris in the development of their institutions” and that 80 percent of the assistance will serve as salaries of the personnel of the concerned madaris (plural of Madrasah).

Nalg exhorted all traditional madaris that are not yet ready to be SMC implementers to apply for permit to operate for the MBHTE to fully recognize them and be beneficiaries of the programs and projects of the Madaris Education.

“The MBHTE wants every Bangsamoro learner to be equipped with balanced education. They must become professionals both in Islamic and secular education.”
