Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program beneficiaries in Rizal provinceANTIPOLO, Rizal, Sept 8 (PIA) –The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) 4A announced that 13,272 poor families from three municipalities in the Province of Rizal are targeted as new beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps).

These are Taytay with 6,157 families from five barangays; Binangonan with 5,165 families from 38 barangays and Cardona with 1,948 families from 18 barangays.

To prepare the local governments of said municipalities in the implementation of 4Ps in their areas, the DSWD-4A held a consultative meeting with local chief executives together with their department heads.

They were oriented on the program and answered their concerns and doubts about its implementation.

DSWD Regional Director Wilma Naviamos said local government units (LGUs) play a key role in the implementation of the program in their respective areas.

She added that to facilitate the program and achieve its goals for beneficiaries, the LGUs must be fully-prepared in all aspects of program implementation so the department can further ensure the intense engagement of LGUs to the program.

DSWD also guided each LGU in planning for the execution of the program, particularly with regards to the validation and registration of beneficiaries which in effect may reduce the actual number of qualified poor families from the targeted 13,272 families.

  1. Am not too keen on this program. It speaks of our mendicant mentality, besides providing too many windows for graft and corruption. Why not utilize the available manpower to dredge and clean our waterways. Our waterways have been dumping grounds for garbage for ages.
