President Joko Jokowi Widodo on Thursday (6/12) visited Aisyiyah University of Yogyakarta (Unisa) at Mlangi Village, Sleman Regency and has a silaturahmi (amicable gathering) with central board of leaders of Unisa.
For the record, Aisyiyah is Muhammadiyah women’s organization which was established in 1917 by Nyai Ahmad Dahlan, the wife of Muhammadiyah’s founder KH. Ahmad Dahlan.
After the visit, President Jokowi told the reporters that his visit aimed at monitoring human resources development.
We want to see things related to the development of human resources as well as our strengths and potentials. This is part of our future major plan, he added.
The President asserted that educational and health institutions which are affiliated with Muhammadiyah have their own excellences and are projected to play a vital role in the Governments human resources development program in 2019.
Educational and health institutions in Muhammadiyah have been established for decades, for example Muallimin-Muallimaat Madrasa (educational institution) that was established in 1918 with its magnificent building. It means Muhammadiyah has engaged in education development since a long time ago.(BPMI/EN)
