The Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program is a key poverty alleviation/
social protection initiative of the PGMA administration and the
incoming Aquino administration wants to continue and expand the
program. Under this program, poor families who fulfill certain
conditions (ex. children regularly attend classes, are fully
immunized, mothers receive pre-natal check-ups, etc) are given P500 a
month for health and nutrition expenses and P300 a month for
educational expenses per child.
