MANILA, Philippines - Tears stream down Zeny’s pale, sunken cheeks as she gazes at the crude stick drawing of a figure of a mother holding on to her children, and at the words written underneath: “Sa aming pinakamamahal na ina, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! Salamat po sa inyong pagmamahal at pag-aaruga sa amin. Pagpalain po kayo ng Panginoong Diyos… ang inyong mga anak, Arvin, Mimi, Jhun-jhun (To our dearest mother, Happy Mother’s Day!

Through the Students Grants-in-Aid Program for Poverty Alleviation (SGP-PA), college education is no longer a remote dream for poor students whose families belong to the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program also known as conditional cash transfer program (CCT). The scholarship program hopes to empower the deserving members of poor households by providing them the opportunity to be employed to higher value-added occupations to help alleviate their family from poverty and at the same time enable them to contribute to national development. Thus, educational grants of qualified CCT beneficiaries now extend up to tertiary education through this scholarship program.

 

Children-beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilya hope to earn college degrees someday.
