22 4Ps beneficiaries from Cordillera pass social workers licensure exam

The great news brought good vibes to netizens as the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) announced that some graduate students who were beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) passed the September 2023 Social Worker Licensure Examination (SWLE) from different provinces in Cordillera region.

It can be read on the official Facebook page of the DSWD, “Sa isinagawang Licensure Examination for Social Workers (LESW) ngayong September 2023, kabilang sa mga pumasa ay ang mga benepisyaryo ng Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) mula sa iba't-ibang probinsya sa rehiyong Cordillera.”

“Base sa isinagawang konsolidasyon ng mga DSWD CAR field staff (as of September 30, 2023), aabot sa 22 ang mga pumasa na dating monitored children at aktibong benepisyaryo ng programa.”

“Hangarin ng DSWD FO CAR na makamit ng mga bagong Registered Social Workers ang layuning maiangat ang estado ng pamumuhay ng kanilang mga pamilya!”

“Inspirasyon kayo ng inyong pamilya, komunidad, at ng buong Cordillera! Matago-tago kayo amin (Mabuhay kayong lahat)!,” the post stated.

The Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) is a conditional cash transfer program in the Philippines. It is one of the flagship social protection programs of the Philippine government aimed at reducing poverty and promoting human capital development among the country's poorest families.

Under the 4Ps, eligible low-income households receive regular cash grants from the government, provided they meet certain conditions related to health, nutrition, and education. These conditions typically include:

Health: Pregnant women must avail of prenatal and postnatal care, and parents must ensure that their children receive regular check-ups and vaccines.

Nutrition: Parents must attend family development sessions on responsible parenting and proper nutrition. They should also ensure that their children have regular meals and maintain a healthy diet.

Education: Children aged 3 to 18 years old must attend school regularly, with a minimum attendance requirement to qualify for the cash grants.

The program is designed to address the immediate financial needs of poor households while also investing in the long-term development of human capital, particularly among children.

By providing cash transfers to families who comply with the program's conditions, it aims to break the cycle of poverty and improve the overall well-being of beneficiaries.

The 4Ps has been a crucial part of the Philippines' efforts to reduce poverty and improve the living conditions of vulnerable populations.

Congratulations, registered social workers!
