MisOr fam­ily is ‘model’ 4Ps ben­e­fi­ciary in NorMin

Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Top Stories -

The Dablo fam­ily in Lagon­g­long, Misamis Ori­en­tal has been cho­sen as this year’s model Pantawid Pam­ilyang Pilipino Pro­gram (4Ps) ben­e­fi­ciary for North­ern Min­danao, ac­cord­ing to the Depart­ment of So­cial Wel­fare and De­vel­op­ment in Re­gion 10 (DSWD-10).

Rex, the head of the fam­ily, de­rives the fam­ily’s main in­come from fish­ing; his wife, Genevieve, sells the catch to their neigh­bors.

The cou­ple’s three chil­dren help their par­ents by shar­ing house­hold chores among them­selves, such as pre­par­ing meals, clean­ing the house, wash­ing the dishes, and do­ing the laun­dry.

DSWD-10 In­for­ma­tion Of­fi­cer Oliver In­odeo on Tues­day said the fam­ily was cho­sen be­cause of their shared pas­sion to im­prove their liv­ing con­di­tion amidst dif­fi­cul­ties.

“The par­ents firmly be­lieved that fam­i­lies play a ma­jor role in how well chil­dren do in school, how well they per­form on the job as adults and how they will con­trib­ute to so­ci­ety in gen­eral, ” In­odeo said of the Dablo cou­ple.

In ad­di­tion, the DSWD also cited the Dablo fam­ily’s ac­tive in­volve­ment in their com­mu­nity’s so­cial life, reg­u­larly par­tic­i­pat­ing in civic and church events.

DSWD said the Dablo cou­ple also scored high on gen­der and de­vel­op­ment through shared par­ent­ing, with each of the cou­ple tak­ing on parental tasks that high­light re­spect for each other’s ca­pac­ity.

“The fam­ily main­tains a God-cen­tered life, demon­strate pos­i­tive Filipino val­ues, and cre­ated an im­pact to their com­mu­nity,” the DSWD said.

4Ps is a con­di­tional cash trans­fer pro­gram of the gov­ern­ment for the poor­est of the poor to im­prove the health, nu­tri­tion, and the ed­u­ca­tion of chil­dren aged 0-18.

The search for the model 4Ps fam­ily aims to em­power the pro­gram ben­e­fi­cia­ries and show the pub­lic the pro­gres­sive im­pact of the pro­gram, cre­ate model fam­i­lies who em­body strong fam­ily ties, demon­strate pos­i­tive Filipino val­ues and cre­ate a pos­i­tive in­flu­ence in the com­mu­nity.
