Cagayan de Oro City — Over 3,000 beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program will attend this year’s National Family Day dubbed as “Tuloy ang Pagbabago!” at Pelaez Sports Center here on Sunday, October 4, 2015.
Hosted by the Department of Social Welfare and Development, the event will highlight the positive contribution of poor families in uplifting their lives through responsible parenting, family development, community participation, community volunteerism, and sustainable livelihood. It will also recognize the support of various national government agencies and non-government organizations which have helped improve the lives of the beneficiaries.
The event will also serve as a celebration among children beneficiaries who became recipients of education and health assistance from the national government.
In partnership with other national government agencies, the DSWD implements the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program as an investment of human capital among poor families by assisting them in their children’s health and education, and in strengthening family and community development.
Through Pantawid Pamilya, the DSWD provides cash grants amounting to a maximum of P1,400 per poor family for their children’s health and education, provided that they comply with certain conditions set by the Program such as enrolling their children to school, sending them for periodic check-ups, and attendance to Family Development Sessions facilitated by the DSWD and its partners.
The National Family Day will also present the provincial “Huwarang Pantawid Pamilya” from the municipalities of Don Carlos in Bukidnon, Catarman in Camiguin, Kolambugan in Lanao del Norte, Jimenez in Misamis Occidental, and Cagayan de Oro City.
