For Pantawid college graduates, DSWD-7 establishes a support group.
The Department of Social Welfare and Development-Central Visayas (DSWD-7) is developing a virtual support group to assist college graduates from Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4P) households in deciding on a professional path.
Jiah Sayson, the regional 4Ps program coordinator for DSWD-7, said in a statement on Tuesday that members of 4Ps families were encouraged to attend the “Kumustahan,” a virtual gathering of “Pantawid graduates,” on Thursday (June 2).
According to Sayson, the activity will provide a platform for 4Ps beneficiaries’ children to discover possibilities and opportunities after completing their college degrees, as well as make the virtual gathering a meaningful platform for coming up with plans, building connections, and planning future developmental activities.
“All we aspire to do is provide a platform that serves their best interests.” “This is part of our attempt to enable young adults and professionals life active, productive, and meaningful lives, which is to help eliminate the intergenerational cycle of poverty,” Sayson added.
This event is also planned to collect information on how many beneficiaries completed their postsecondary education while receiving assistance from the national government’s poverty reduction program.
According to Sayson, the agency can obtain comments and suggestions from participants on how to improve the program through the virtual support group.
The activity will also assist the graduates in making decisions about their personal plans and activities.
The 4Ps program gives severely poor families conditional cash payments for up to seven years to enhance their health, nutrition, and education, especially for children aged 0 to 14.
