Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program

 Patterned after the conditional cash transfer scheme implemented

in other developing countries, the Pantawid Pamilya provides cash
grants to beneficiaries provided that they comply with the set of
conditions required by the program.

 It is patterned on programs in other developing countries like Brazil

(Bolsa Familia) and Mexico (Oportunidades).
Conditional cash transfer (CCT)
 Aim to reduce poverty by making welfare programs conditional
upon the receivers' actions.

 The government (or a charity) only transfers the money to persons

who meet certain criteria.

breaking the cycle of poverty for the next through the development
of human capital.

 Pantawid Pamilya boosts local economy according to research

 The findings of a research study done by the team of Dr. Lourdes S.
Adriano, a former professor at the University of the Philippines, for the
Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) were
discussed during the Public Forum entitled, “Pantawid Pamilyang
Pilipino Program: Stimulus to Local Economic Growth?” held jointly
by the DSWD, Ateneo School of Governance (ASoG), and the
Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) at the
Ateneo University on June 23.
 The study was carried out with support from the Australian Embassy.

 The key findings of the study are:

 Household Level Analysis

 For food items, the Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries are consuming
more cereals, in general, and more rice, in particular, than non-
beneficiaries. For non-food items such as clothing, health,
education, utilities, communications and recreational goods, the
patterns of spending are shown to be generally higher among
Pantawid beneficiaries compared to non-beneficiaries.
 The overall pattern in terms of savings and other forms of
investments shows that Pantawid beneficiaries are saving and
investing more than the non-Pantawid Pamilya counterparts.

 The key findings of the study are:

 Household Level Analysis

 In terms of key economic decisions made by the household, the results
showed that women in Pantawid Pamilya households are more active
in the decision making on household marketing and budgeting. This
demonstrates that the program does not only affect the behavior of
the households in terms of consumption but has also enhanced the
women’s role in the decision making on marketing and budgeting.
 The benefits of Pantawid Pamilya is not limited to its direct material
benefits. It was found out that the program influences aspirations, which
in turn determines the future behavior of the beneficiaries. The study
showed that beneficiaries are more optimistic in terms of their children
achieving more in life than their parents. Further, beneficiaries have
higher social aspirations compared to non-beneficiaries.

 The key findings of the study are:

 Economic Sector Analysis (Rice Value Chain)

 The Pantawid Pamilya cash grants along with the Internal Revenue
Allotment (IRA) of the local government units (LGUs) create a multiplier
effect in the local economy of Bicol estimated to be 7.87 and 3.49 for
the first and second income deciles, respectively. Also, it was found out
the Pantawid Pamilya cash grants for Bicolanos can potentially
generate an additional P18 to 40 billion revenue for the local economy.
 There is a significant increase in the number of registered agricultural-
related businesses in the three locales of the study. Total capitalization
of all registered agriculture businesses increased from about P1.65
million in 2005 to about P13.27 million. Total sales are rose from a measly
amount of P3.645 million in 2005 to P119.23 million in 2015.

 The key findings of the study are:

 Economic Sector Analysis (Rice Value Chain)

 2005 to about P13.27 million. Total sales are rose from a measly
amount of P3.645 million in 2005 to P119.23 million in 2015.
 Rice consumption behavior of Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries who
are not rice farmers, has changed in terms of quality as manifested
by the shift from NFA rice to commercial rice. According to the
respondents, the cash grants, along with the relatively lower prices
of commercial rice, enabled them to afford better quality
commercial rice.

 The key findings of the study are:

 Economic Sector Analysis (Rice Value Chain)

 There are changes in behavior and action of Pantawid Pamilya
beneficiaries toward other rice stakeholders. They increased their
access to credit from rice retail stores because of the predictable
streams of income coming from the Pantawid Pamilya cash grants.
Beneficiaries have forged a stronger relationship with retail stores
through a “suki relationship” over time. Rice Value Chain (RVC) players
confirmed slight increase in their incomes when Pantawid beneficiaries
became group buyers. In turn, rice retailers and wholesalers have
extended credit and other special arrangements to Pantawid rice
consumers to encourage them to buy.

 The key findings of the study are:

 Flea Market Case Study

 It is now a common sight to see the operations of a flea market near
the site where the Pantawid Pamilya cash payouts are being made.
The case study shows that the operations of the flea market is a
manifestation that the extra income received from the Program can
perk up local economic activities since most products being sold in
the flea market come from the locality or neighboring areas. Even
merchants not participating in the flea market, such as pharmacy
store, mini-grocery, and school supplies shops, gained from the
expenditures of Pantawid beneficiaries.

 The key findings of the study are:

 Flea Market Case Study

 The municipality derived extra revenues from flea market traders by
imposing market rental fees collected by a designated market
collector. The positive contribution of these extra revenues
generated is highly visible in Libon where the successful operation of
the Libon Town Center (LTC) is partly supported by the fees
generated from the market rentals where various merchants sell
their wares particularly during payout days.

 The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD),

through the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, intensifies its
efforts to help end child labor as it launches the Family
Development Session Module on Child Labor.

 The module is an educational program that teaches the parent

beneficiaries about child labor, its negative effects on their children
and their families, and how they can end child labor in their own
homes and communities. It was designed to guide the Pantawid
Pamilya City/Municipal Links and implementers in conducting three
Family Development Sessions (FDS) that focus on preventing and
putting a stop to child labor practices in communities.

 FDS is a monthly gathering of Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries where

parents are taught new skills and given information on how they
can best implement their parental roles and exercise their
responsibilities to their children.
2018 - March

 The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is now

accepting applications for the Government Internship Program
(GIP), with 1,360 slots nationwide for young Filipinos 18 to 25 years
2018 - May

 The Department of Agriculture (DA) wants to change the

conditional cash transfer (CCT) scheme of the government into a
livelihood program instead of giving monthly dole-outs to help
contribute to farm productivity in the country.

 Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol plans to submit a proposal to

President Duterte that will alter rules and mechanisms of the
Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), which was started
during the previous administration and has a budget of about P70
2018 - May

 “Instead of giving it out in the forms of dole-out every month, why

don’t we start a livelihood program using that money so that the 4Ps
beneficiaries would be contributors to agriculture production
instead of them not being able to participate right now,” Piñol told
reporters on the sidelines of the first Agriculture Trade and
Investment Forum yesterday.

“The gist is that we should make use of the 4Ps fund for livelihood
activities to increase greater food productivity. As to the livelihood,
it will be the choice of the beneficiary whether they want vegetable
growing or backyard poultry raising among others,” Piñol said.
