DSWD program continues to train partner agencies
by John Escalante

To strengthen the smoother implementation of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), the Department of Social Welfare and Development Project Management Office recently held municipal action team (MAT) training workshops in Mountain Province, and a city action team (CAT) orientation in Baguio City.

The workshops in Mountain Province were held in Natonin and Sadanga last Aug. 17-20, while that of Baguio City was in Aug. 26-27.

The CAT and MAT trainings were attended by local representatives from the Department of Education, Department of Health, Local Government Units, and pa-rent-leaders from the communities.

The activities reiterated the roles and responsibilities of the partner agencies in the program, among which include ensuring the beneficiaries’ access to health and education; provision of technical aid; and assistance in monitoring to ensure smooth implementation of 4Ps in their respective municipalities.

The 4Ps recognizes the importance of the participation of partner agencies and pa-rent leaders in the program.

In a message given by Baguio City councilor Betty Lourdes Tabanda during the CAT training, she said the program is very helpful since it gives direct assistance to the poor. She then enjoined the parents to see to it that the money will be spent where it is intended so that after five years, the families’ status will be uplifted.

DSWD OIC assistant regional director Godelyn Iremedio, on behalf of the regional office, expressed her gratitude to the partners for their cooperation. “We look forward to the better implementation of the program, in partnership with you,” she added.

The MAT training will be the foundation in the creation of the municipal advisory council and the provincial grievance committee that will serve as the local monitoring body on issues and concerns in the area regarding 4Ps.

4Ps is a poverty-reduction strategy of the government that provides cash grants to extremely poor households to improve their health, nutrition, and education.
