Social information for those who are interested: The Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program

Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program

is a poverty reduction and social development strategy of the national government that provides conditional cash grants to extremely poor households to improve their health, nutrition and education particularly of children aged 0-14.

Pantawid Pamilya has dual objectives:

  • Social Assistance – to provide cash assistance to the poor to alleviate their immediate need (short term poverty alleviation); and
  • Social Development – to break the intergenerational poverty cycle through investments in human capital.

Pantawid Pamilya helps to fulfill the country’s commitment to meet the Millennium Development Goals, namely:

  1. Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger
  2. Achieve Universal Primary Education
  3. Promote Gender Equality
  4. Reduce Child Mortality
  5. Improve Maternal Health
