COTABATO CITY—The Bangsamoro Youth Commission (BYC) Tawi-Tawi graced the project launching and clean-up drive of Kasambuhan A’a Kauman Association for Sustainability, Innovation & Empowerment (KAKASIE), on Sunday, June 19.

BYC Tawi-Tawi Commissioner Pratima Sabal Samsaraji attended the the launching of Environmental Conservation Community Project, a joint project from Bangsamoro Youth Leaders Program-Leadership Communities 2 (BYLP-LeadCom2) and the Ideation Impact Challenge (IIC) 2021.

Commissioner Samsaraji, during her message, said the BYC, as an office under the Bangsamoro Government which concerns the welfare of the youth, is committed to provide any means of support and capacity development for its constituents.

“Ang KAKASIE ay isa sa mga nakikita nating youth champions ng ating rehiyon dahil sa patuloy nitong ipinapamalas ang kanilang agenda sa pamamagitan ng pag-implimenta ng mga makahulugang inisyatibo, katulad nito. Kami naman sa BYC ay patuloy na susuporta at ipapaabot ang programa ng ating gobyerno para sa ating mga kabataan,” Commissioner Samsaraji said.

The launching is one of the series of activities under Management for Sustainable Surrounding Land (MA SUSULAN) Project, and Nature Education on Environmental Design and Economic Development (NEEDED) being implemented by the KAKASIE-Youth Serving Organization.

“Nakita po natin ang inyong mabuting hangarin sa inyong komunidad, at makakaasa po tayong maipagpapatuloy pa ito sa tulong ng ating Bangsamoro Government,” Commissioner Samsaraji added.

The NEEDED Project is one of the champions in the entire region during IIC 2021. It is a three-month project which aims to address issues on improper waste disposal in their community.

The project provides Project Nature Educational Programs to promote community conservation that can help the environment and educate community people for reinforcement of full implementation of the policies and ordinances.

On the other hand, MA SUSULAN Project is a project funded under BYLP-LeadCom 2. It is a five-month project which aims to address the issues on improper waste disposal in the community by conducting coastal clean-up drive in coordination with stakeholders, barangay officials.
