PIA Press Release

P59.783 million released to Antique beneficiaries of 4Ps

San Jose, Antique (25 May) -- A total P59,783,300.00 was released by the Department of Social Welfare and Development to beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) in the Province of Antique to about 9, 807 beneficiaries from 173 barangays in the Municipalities of San Remigio, Laua-an, Valderrama, Barbaza and Bugasong.

Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) is a poverty reduction strategy that provides grants to extremely poor households to improve their health, nutrition and education particularly of children aged 0-14 (DSWD).

It further aims to provide cash assistance to the poor to alleviate their needs (short term poverty alleviation), and to break the intergenerational poverty cycle through investments in human capital.

The project started in October to December 2008 and subsequent releases were done quarterly in 2009 as long as the beneficiaries have complied with the conditions and requirements prescribed by the program under the monitoring of DSWD.

Based on the monitoring of the municipal/regional links the following are the impacts in the communities concerned; change on health behavior where parents are beginning to be more responsive to the health needs of their children, increase in school enrollment, increase in the registration of live births, legalization of marriages through mass weddings and provision of additional supply on health and nutrition.

To continuously receive the cash subsidies, the family beneficiaries should comply with the conditions of the program which include regular attendance of children in school, children continue to receive health care check ups/packages from the health centers like vaccinations, pregnant women must receive pre and post natal care and be attended during child birth by a skilled health professional and parents must attend responsible parenthood seminars, mothers classes and parent effectiveness sessions.

4Ps is special project of DSWD in partnership with the Departments of Agriculture, Education, Health and Interior and Local Government and the Local Government Units. (PIA6/psm) [top]
