 Gay Myrell Abrogena (left photo) and Mary Rose Cabrera (right photo) are ready to serve their families and communities by becoming public school teachers.
 
Once, Gay Myrell Abrogena and Mary Rose Cabrera believed that getting a college degree was just an elusive dream.

Now the two teachers are ready to give back to their communities, thanks to the Students Grant-in-Aid Program for Poverty Alleviation (SGP-PA).

Myrell and Mary Rose belong to families who are beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program in Ilocos. Through the SGP-PA, an educational program for college students from Pantawid Pamilya households, they were given the opportunity to continue their studies and finish higher education. 

Last year, Myrell and Mary Rose’s hard work paid off when they passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET).

"Noon sinuwerte lang siguro kami sa kalsada at walang kapahamakan na nangyari sa amin, pero ngayon, di na ako papayag na manirahan ulit kami sa kalsada. Masyadong delikado ‘dun (We were lucky that our family was unharmed while living on the streets, but now I won’t allow us to live there again. It’s too dangerous),” said Nicanor Ripalda Raz, a former street dweller turned beneficiary of the Modified Conditional Cash Transfer for Homeless Street Families (MCCT-HSF) implemented by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

Simpson (L) and Dela Cruz(R) families joined the DSWD’s Family Camp in Batangas.
“Mahirap tumira sa lansangan. Maingay, magulo. Hindi ka makakain at makatulog ng maayos. Sana balang araw makaalis kami sa ganitong sitwasyon (It’s hard to live in the streets. It’s noisy and dirty here. You can’t eat and sleep well. We hope that we’ll be able to get out of this situation someday).” 

This is how Mark Anthony Simpson describes his life living in the streets of Manila. 

He is one of the participants of the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s (DSWD) six-day Family Camp. The activity was an opportunity for 100 street families, majority of who belong to the Modified Conditional Cash Transfer Program for Homeless Street Families (MCCT-HSF).

I’m a 4Ps scholar PDF Print

They call us the lower class, the twerps, a burden to the government. They dub us dependents, supposedly merely after government doles. They call us the poorest of the poor, the beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps).
 
Let me tell you people, we are less fortunate but we are not stupid. Yes, we are receiving a certain amount from the government, to alleviate our current situation, which is the program’s primary objective. But, is it really a basis for social discrimination and bullying?

I am a 4Ps scholar, one of the beneficiaries of the Expanded Students’ Grant-In-Aid Program for Poverty Alleviation (ESGP-PA), to be particular about it. So, what do you think? I am giving you the freedom to say something about it. Are you one of those judgmental persons or among the rational ones?

Pantawid Pamilya student beneficiaries from Brgy. Lajala in Coron wave as they go to school using the school boats. 
It has been more than a year since Typhoon Yolanda struck the beautiful island of Coron, Palawan. The survivors worked their way to move forward from the memories of ruthlessness and despair the typhoon brought to start their lives anew. After several months, the municipality’s tourism industry was active again. The tourists flocked the island once more and the business establishments were back in raking profits. 
 
But while the locals started to earn a living, the students felt out as they had no means of going back to school. Coron is an island municipality so the kids need to cross the West Philippine Sea to get to schools. But the boats and balsas that take them to their schools on island barangays were destroyed. They were missing out on their classes.
