Parang, Maguindanao – The Bangsamoro Women Commission through its representatives Mary Jane Alluden and Jolie Lasuerte attended the consultative meeting of the Local Poverty Reduction Action Team (LPRAT) on April 6, 2022, conducted by the National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC).

This was in response to the call of Executive Secretary Salvador C.

BWC representatives shared the commission’s mandates and existing projects, activities, and programs as well as each of the LGUs representatives to show solidarity with NAPC’s implementation of their project.
