The 4Ps or the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program is the Philippine Government’s largest anti-poverty 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, such as attending family development sessions or FDS. The FDS cover a range of topics, which also includes children’s rights.
Through our partnership with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), the FDS will now include CSAP. This represents a significant breakthrough in Stairway’s advocacy, as the CSAP FDS sessions are derived from Stairway’s CSAP sessions, and will have the potential to reach 4Million households.
