Subic- Leonie Nervida, 47, lives in a tiny, two-room apartment that lies at the end of a row of similarly small apartments in Barangay New Banicain in this city. She shares the single bedroom with her husband Francisco (“Nanie”) who, at 60, is 13 years older than she.

They have eight children (“I had three children when he met me,” Leonie says, “but he accepted them fully and treated them, like the ones we had together, as his own”), only the three youngest live with them at present, all still in school. Her fifth child, says Leonie, is now 15 and should be a freshman in high school but he has yet to return home after taking a vacation with an older sibling. “Pasaway” (hard-headed), she describes the boy, who apparently has no wish to go back to school.

GENERAL SANTOS CITY: The government’s Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) program is still a work in progress and its implementor, the Department of Social Welfare and Development, does not pretend to claim that it is being smoothly implemented.

Overall, however, the program is seen as a success since the poorest of the poor are saved from hunger while their children receive health care and go to elementary and secondary schools.

We are no stranger to horrible accounts of violence committed against women and children. Heart- breaking narratives of wives being beaten to death by their jealous husbands and children raped by the people who should be protecting them are sometimes trivialized as nothing extraordinary but a matter of the family.

Violence against women and children (VAWC) happens every day and across culture.  There is a wide spectrum of gender-based violence wherein women and girls are vulnerable to. These include trafficking, physical and sexual abuses, economic deprivation, and even psychological battering.

“Matagal akong naitali sa paniniwalang ang babae ay dapat nasa loob lang ng bahay. Pero simula nang naging Parent Leader na ako para sa Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, nalaman ko na mas marami pa pala akong pwedeng magawa at magampanan, hindi lang para sa ikauunlad ng aking sarili, kundi lalo na ng aking pamilya (I was tied up for a long time with the belief that women must spend their lives sheltered inside their homes, but when I started to be a parent leader for Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, I learned that I can do more things and roles to partake, not only for the development of myself, but especially for my family),” said Aling Glomeline.

Glomeline Taguinod from Dadda, Tuguegarao City is one of the 160,000 parent leaders of the Pantawid Pamilya nationwide.
