Isa si Alvin sa mga batang benepisyaryo na nabigyan ng pagkakataon upang maipag-patuloy ang kanyang pag-aaral sa high school.Hindi maiwasang malungkot ni Alvin Serrano nang tumungtong siya ng 15 taon gulang. Naisip niya na hindi na siya magiging benepisyaryo ng Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program. Bago kasi na-expand ang programa, hanggang 14 taong gulang na bata lang ang mga batang benepisyaryo. Nag-alala siya na baka hindi na siya makakapag-aral dahil sa hirap ng buhay.

“Naisip ko po na kapag nawala na ako sa programa, hindi na ako makatapos ng high school. Yung cash grant kasi ang ginagamit namin pambili ng mga gamit sa eskwela at sa projects,” kwento ni Alvin na nag-aaral sa Ramon Magsaysay High School sa Maynila.

Ngunit napawi ang lungkot ni Alvin nang ibalita ng kanyang nanay na si Carolina na na-expand na ang programa. Tumutulong na ito sa mga batang benepisyaryong hanggang 18 taong gulang upang  makatapos ng high school. Nakakatanggap si Alvin ng P500 kada-buwan para sa kanyang edukasyon.

Si Jocelyn Aligata ng Hinigaran, Negros Occidental, 23 taong gulang, ay nahinto ng limang taon sa pag-aaral. Hindi na matugunan ng kanyang mga magulang ang kanyang pag-aaral dahil kulang ang kinikita ng kanyang tatay para sa gastusin sa bahay. 

“Hirap po kami sa buhay kaya nahinto kami sa pag-aaral. Nagtrabaho nang maiigi ang tatay ko para hindi kami magutom,” sabi ni Jocelyn na namasukan bilang katulong upang kumita nang mahinto siya sa pag-aaral. Labing-walong taong gulang siya noon. 
Kapareho ng kapalaran ni Jocelyn si Gay Myrell Abrogena ng Pinili, Ilocos Norte. Nasa ikatlong taon na si Myrell sa kursong B.S. Education nang sabihin sa kanya ng kaniyang mga magulang na hindi na niya muna maipagpapatuloy ang kanyang pag-aaral.

To embrace it with optimism is what the 33-year-old Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program beneficiary Atiya Enting Jumdail always does whenever she faces a new challenge on her life.  She says that every challenge that comes her way brings a perfect opportunity to learn through change. To her, learning through challenges is a strategy that has long helped her through the countless trials that she  experienced ever since she and his husband started their lives together.

Atiya has been married for eighteen years to Timbasil Jumdail, a fisherman. With the meager income of P3,000 a month, the couple struggled to support even the studies of their six children. Atiya, however, carried the challenge devotedly and surpassed it together with her husband.

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.
