Gov’t, MILF to launch ‘Sajahatra Bangsamoro’ 


THE Aquino government is set to launch on Monday a socio-economic initiative dubbed "Sajahatra Bangsamoro" aimed at uplifting the health, education and livelihood conditions of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) communities, a Palace official said. 

In line with President Benigno S. Aquino III's instructions to provide immediate socio-economic interventions for the MILF communities, Cabinet Secretary Jose Rene Almendras said the national government will launch the “Sajahatra Bangsamoro” in partnership with the MILF leadership. 

"Sajahatra Bangsamoro, an Arabic-Melayu-Bahasa derivative which means 'Peace Bangsamoro,' is the President’s concrete peace initiative and assistance for the MILF communities," Almendras said at the press briefing in Malacanang on Wednesday. 

Almendras noted that the program signifies the partnership between the government and the MILF in working towards peace and development of the Bangsamoro communities as well as the entire country. 

The national government will take the lead in the ceremonial launch of the program to be held at the Bangsamoro Leadership and Management Institute compound in Sultan Kudarat town in Maguindanao. 

Almendras said the Sajahatra Bangsamoro will focus on health, education and livelihood services that will be done through an-inter-agency mechanism. 

"These will include provision of health insurance by the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth); upgrading of community-based health services by the Department of Health (DOH); provision of college scholarships and technical-vocational training by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), respectively; educational assistance to madaris (Islamic schools) and private schools by the Department of Education, needs assessment of selected Bangsamoro communities; Cash for Work Program, through the Department of Social Welfare and Development, among others," Almendras said.
