The Bangsamoro Sports Commission (BSC) has turned over sports equipment to the Maguindanao II Schools Division Office in Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao.
The handing over of equipment Wednesday, November 27, was part of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao’s (BARMM) celebration of the National Children’s Month (NCM).
BSC chairman Norham Uka urged students in the region to work hard to make their dreams possible, stressing that poverty is not an obstacle to attain their goals.
“A player must keep his or dream alive,” he said.
The celebration of the NCM is pursuant to Republic Act No. 10661 or “An Act Declaring the Month of November of Every Year as the National Children’s Month,” which also commemorates the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child by the United Nations General Assembly on November 20, 1989.
This year’s celebration carries the theme “Engaging Children in Sports for the Future of BARMM.”
