PIA Press Release

Feature: Bracing development, DSWD enhances 4Ps

by Recthie Tolinero

Cagayan de Oro City (14 May) -- The early beginnings of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program or 4Ps have been tough yet valuable not only to the beneficiaries but also to the department.

As the key implementer of the program, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) faced enormous challenges in upholding a fair and beneficial program that will alleviate poverty in the country.

True to our words, the department has been able to serve 700,000 poor households nationwide in 2009 and in Region 10, a total of P-280M cash grants has already been released to 63,210 beneficiaries.

Since 4Ps does not solely dwell on giving out conditional cash grants, systems for Compliance Verification, Updates and Grievance Redress were also made to ensure that the Program's goal in fostering improved health and education are met.

As a good start for this year, 4Ps has been expanded to serve one million beneficiaries throughout the country which include an additional 10,000 beneficiaries from the region.

The expansion covered the municipalities of Cabanglasan, Damulog, Kitaotao, Malitbog and San Fernando in Bukidnon; Sagay in Camiguin; Alubijid, Manticao and Claveria in Misamis Oriental and three cities that include Iligan City, Cagayan de Oro City and Tangub City.

Bearing in mind the initial gains of the program that include the increased rates in enrolment and number of visits in health centers, and active participation as well as intensified community involvement of the beneficiaries during family development sessions, DSWD is positive that the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program will definitely pave the way towards development.
