The Sulu Ulama Council for Peace and Development opened formally the Islamic values formation for Gawad Kalinga Kapitbahayan in Barangay Lawm Maimbung, Municipality of Maimbung, Province of Sulu.

Values formation is among the core program of Gawad Kalinga, every kapitbahayan member is required to attend the sessions for them to foster harmonious relationships and share common values of being God-loving, bayani, advocate bayahihan and love of country.

Gawad Kalinga has partnered with the Ulama Council along values formation in a meeting with the Ulama Council headed by the Mufti of Lupah Sug, Ustadz Jul-Asiri Abirin.

The beneficiaries of the core shelter project were also required to attend the values formation. This project of the Department of Social Welfare and Development is in partnership with Sulu Gov Abdusakur M Tan, who is also the donor of the almost four-hectare lot intended for Gawad Kalinga and core housing projects.

Ustadz Yahya Abdulla, Ustadz Moh Arshaid Abdulmajid, Tuan Yahya Titong and Tuan Mujarnie Jajie gave lectures to the attendees numbering to more than two hundred individuals. Gawad Kalinga Head Jainab Abdulmajid gave the opening message, who encouraged everyone to get their share in the blessings of learning the teachings of the Holy Quran from the religious scholars.

Also in attendance were beneficiaries of Gov Tan housing projects (houses on stilts) in Liyuh Suba, Barangay Poblacion and Duhul Duhul Village in Barangay Lawm Maimbung, both in the Municipality of Maimbung. These recipients have totaled to seventy five households.

Gov Tan who himself saw the merit of the values formation extended his thanks to the Ulama Council for taking the lead in the conduct of the program in the said locality and hopes to see the same in the entire province of Sulu.

Gawad Kalinga founder Tony Meloto in his text message to GK Head Jainab Abdulmajid also extended his thanks to the Ulama Council and considers the friendship with the tausugs as something that is meant to last because the friendship is true. (PIO)
