PIA Press Release

DSWD Caraga conducts validation in 4Ps batch 1 and 2 areas

by Leah T. Quintana

Butuan City (15 August) -- The validation of potential beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), according to director Mercedita P. Jabagat of the regional social welfare office, has been going on in batch 1 areas in Caraga region since middle of July until now, to ensure that final beneficiaries to get the cash grant are the poorest households in the community.

It can be recalled that in May until July 2008, DSWD conducted a saturation survey in all barangays of target municipalities of batches 1 and 2. During validation, potential beneficiaries are oriented on 4Ps and clarifications about the program are discussed. Validation proper follows, in which, validators assess, correct and update the data of the potential beneficiaries using the prescribed validation sheet.

The validators must ensure that validation sheets are signed by the potential beneficiaries before proceeding to the next step which is the Signing of the Oath of Commitment. Before signing, conditions of the program are reiterated and explained to the potential beneficiaries.

The signing of the Oath of Commitment is a proof that the household beneficiary commits to comply with all the conditions of 4Ps. Then, potential beneficiaries enroll to the LBP Cash Card program by filling-out the LandBank form. The validation activity ended with the taking of ID pictures of the potential beneficiaries.

Once the picture taking is complete, household beneficiaries are told to go home and to wait to be called again for the release of 4Ps ID and LandBank cash card.

The 4Ps batch 1 areas are Esperanza, Sibagat, San Luis, Loreto, La Paz, Sta. Josefa, and Veruela in Agusan del Sur.

Batch 2 areas composed of San Benito, Socorro, San Isidro, Pilar, Del Carmen, Malimono, General Luna, Dapa and Gigaquit in surigao del Norte and Basilisa, Cagdianao, Libjo and Tubajon in the Province of Dinagat Islands will be also validated within this month of August. (DSWD-13/PIA-Caraga) [top]
