President Aquino trumpets achievements of 4Ps in his 6th State of the Nation Address
 

President Benigno S. Aquino III cited the gains of the government’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), also known as the Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) program, in his 6th State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Monday.

One of the major achievements President Aquino highlighted in his last SONA, delivered at the Session Hall of the House of Representatives, is the positive impact of the Pantawid Pamilya on the lives of its beneficiaries.

President Aquino said the government has expanded the program’s coverage to include poor families with high school-aged children.

“Pinalawak natin nang husto ang saklaw nito. Ngayon, nasa mahigit 4.4 million na ang kabahayang nakikinabang sa programa. Malayong-malayo ito sa dinatnan nating 786,523 lamang na kabahayan,” he said.

The President said 333,673 student-beneficiaries of the expanded Pantawid Pamilya completed high school this year. Of the figure, 13,469 graduated with honors and a variety of awards.

“Ang lahat po ng benepisyaryong ito, tataas ang antas ng kaalaman; sa halip na menial jobs ang pasukan ay malamang makakuha sila ng mga trabahong maayos ang mga suweldo,” he said.

“Income tax pa lang nila, bawi na ang puhunan ng estado, at maitutuloy natin ang siklo ng pagbibigay-lakas sa mga nangangailangan. Bonus pa po ang lalong magandang kinabukasang nag-aabang para sa mga honor students na pinagtapos ng programa,” he added.  (full story: 07.28.15)
