14 more barangays benefit from 4Ps by Erika P. Castillejo
Qualified poor households from 14 barangays attended the second phase of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) of the Department of Social Welfare and Development at the Engineer’s Hill covered court last Jan. 12 with the theme “Kaya ng Pinoy tumawid sa kaunlaran.”

The first phase was done last year benefiting 10 barangays in the city.

DSWD director Porfiria Bernardez gave an opening message before the actual processing of papers of the households present there.

Janet Armas, deputy project manager of the 4Ps, also explained what the program is all about.

“4Ps is the Philippines’ version of the Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) program which had started in different countries years ago,” Armas said.

CCT was first done by Brazil, Columbia, Indonesia, and Cambodia as a solution to poverty, inequality, and other socio-cultural problems.

The Philippines has already been acquiring the principle starting 2007 wherein qualified poor families through a process of validation are benefited with a cash grant to assist their needs in a year.

Armas said each qualified family receives P500 for health and nutrition a month and each child (0-14y/o) receives P300 for 10 months. Direct transfer of grants is being done so each beneficiary is a holder of a Landbank cash card.

The dual objectives of CCT are social assistance, wherein the short-term needs of the families are addressed and social development which is a long-term process of breaking poverty through investment in human’s health and education.

The program is in coordination with the Department of Health and the Department of Education. 4Ps is to cover over two million households all over the country this
