"Pag binigyan kayo ng pagkakàtaon, you do good for the people."
This was what Municipal Administrator Gonzalo Baral said to the municipal links of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program under the Municipal Social Welfare and Development (MSWD) as they presented to the highlights on the Pantawid Accomplishment Reports on August 10, 2022.
Ms. Pearl Ish-Sha V. Fralick, Project Development Officer II run through the past and current activities conducted under the program. These include updates on Pugay Tagumpay, home visitation and barangay assemblies, updating of the case folders of the beneficiaries, and projects in collaboration with other LGU departments and offices such as, but not limited to, the Municipal Agriculture's Office (MAO) and the Public Employment Service Office (PESO).
Ms. Fralick proceeded to the discussion of the up coming activities related to the program. This highlights the different consultative meetings with the different offices like the Department of Education, and Rural Health Unit.
Administrator Baral encouraged the municipal links to strengthen their information and education campaign to further inspire the beneficiaries to continuously develop themselves and not to solely depend on the incentives that the program provides.
Baka pwedeng isama sa (educational) campaign na gisingin ang kamalayan at planuhin ang kinabukasan ng ating 4Ps," said Admin Baral as he pointed out the importance of education among the beneficiaries.
Admin Baral also encouraged the MSWD to tap the assistance and partner with other LGU departments and offices in order to maximize the support that can be provided to the beneficiaries. He then thanked the municipal links for the efforts that they give ever since the start of the program.
"Capacitate the 4Ps and the LGU will help you," added Admin Baral to show support to the initiatives under the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program.
