DSWD-7 delists 10 household 4Ps beneficiaries for non-compliance of program’s conditions
LAPU-LAPU CITY, Philippines — The Department of Social Welfare and Development in Central Visayas (DSWD-7) has delisted 10 household beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) due to persistent non-compliance to the program’s conditions.
The agency found out that monitored children of these beneficiaries were not attending school or had not shown any commitment to returning back to school and the grantee did not attend the monthly Family Development Sessions (FDS).
For 2022, the program also monitored a total of 767 households who were not compliant to the program conditions and were subject to case management and further evaluations.
“Those non-compliant beneficiaries will be case managed by our case worker and will take appropriate steps to resolve those issues on why they cannot comply with the conditions set by the program,” DSWD-7 OIC-Regional Director Shalaine Marie Lucero said.
Based on Section 12 of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) Act or Republic Act “should the qualified household-beneficiary so notified persists in not complying with the conditions within a period of one (1) year since the day of receipt of the written notification, the household-beneficiary shall be removed from the program.”
Under the case management process, the beneficiaries will undergo a transformative process, as they will be guided with new information and ways to evaluate past ideas, beliefs, and understandings through critical reflection that will lead to a change of perception.
The case management process outcome would subsequently keep them on track and allow them to remain in the program after the appropriate case management intervention.
“Our 4Ps beneficiaries must value the program membership and understand the conditions to be complied with, including health and education. Their difficulty in compliance can be resolved by addressing the root cause of the problem,” she added.
“We have cases of 20 households, who were retained in the program after one year of the evaluation period and intensive case management that showed improved compliance in all program conditionalities, like their children, are already attending school and the grantee is attending the monthly FDS,” she said.
