DSWD provides P30 million for a program to aid students in the Zambo Peninsula.

For its educational support program in the area, the Department of Social Welfare and Development in the Zamboanga Peninsula (DSWD-9) has allotted about PHP30 million.

Ivan Eric Salvador, DSWD-9’s communication officer, announced on Friday that six Saturdays had been set aside for the disbursement of the dividend to local recipients who have been identified.

“The payout will begin on August 20 and run until September 24. First-come, first-served will apply, Salvador stated in an interview.

Salvador reported that the Zamboanga Peninsula has 1,251 known recipients.

Every year, destitute students, as well as those enrolled in technical or vocational schools, public colleges, and universities, get educational support.

Salvador stated that each student beneficiary receives a different amount of educational monetary assistance, ranging from PHP1,000 for elementary school to PHP4,000 for college and vocational students.

Students from families in distress because one or both of their parents lost their job or passed away are also eligible for help, as are students whose parents were overseas Filipino workers (OFW) who have since been repatriated or deported.

Salvador instructed the designated recipients to provide the necessary documentation, including a valid ID card from their school, a certificate of enrollment, and, for college and vocational students, a legitimate ID card from their parents or guardians.
