SJDM City Cong Robes says 4Ps intends to break cycle of poverty

Oct 10, 2018 @ 11:21

Representative Florida Robes of San Jose Del Monte City, Bulacan shuns criticisms that the government’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program or 4Ps is a dole-out.

According to a statement Wednesday from the House of Representatives, Robes, in a forum on Tuesday about the 4Ps, shared the views of a Department of Social Welfare and Development officer that the 4Ps is not a short-term poverty allegation program, but a long-term investment to improve the lives of Filipino families.

Robes, the statement, said, stressed “that the 4Ps is intended to enable poor families to ‘break free from the intergenerational cycle of poverty’.”

The Bulacan politiko disclosed during the forum that an independent monitoring committee to be composed of private sector stakeholders and civil society organizations has been created.

Noting the need for collaborative action between stakeholders for the program’s sustainability, Robes said the committee will complement the monitoring activities of the DSWD on the 4Ps implementation.

Tuesday’s forum, titled “Talakayan ukol sa Gampanin ng Sambayanan sa Disenyo, Implementasyon, Pagsasabuhay at Pagtataya ng Programang Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps),” was aimed at empowering, engaging, and educating stakeholders and 4Ps beneficiaries on their respective roles in the program.

DSWD Director Leonardo Reynoso said in the forum that the successful implementation of the program rests on the cooperation among the government agencies, local government units, socio-civic organizations and people’s organizations.(END)
