Tabuk City, Kalinga – Nearly two thousand families in Kalinga who are part of the government’s anti-poverty program have improved their quality of living and are now set to be delisted from the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program.
The program, known as 4Ps, was introduced to grant conditional cash to the poorest of the poor in the country. This aims to break the ‘inter-generational’ cycle of poverty by improving the health, nutrition, and education of children ages 0-18 years old.
Through the Philippine Information Agency – Kalinga, Geraldine Toyoken of the Social Welfare and Development (SWAD) in the province reported that a total of 1,700 households are eligible to graduate from said program.
This is due to improved living standards – from survival to subsistence status or the condition of just having enough food or money.
Meantime, the SWAD – Kalinga has completed its validation of 5,884 households tagged as non-poor on October 15, 2022.
According to the Department of Social Welfare and Development, the 4Ps program covers a total of 4, 235,700 households from 41,676 barangays in the entire Philippines as of March 31, 2022.
