The SLP gives significant priority to the PantawidPamilya beneficiaries in all its interventions since they are considered to be the poorest of the poor as signified by the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR).

According to Atty. Araceli F. Solamillo, Regional Director of the DSWD, the NCII certificates the Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries have received, serves as a guarantee that they will gain decent jobs locally and abroad.

Under the Republic Act 7796, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is mandated by law to develop and implement a national system of skills standardization, assessment and certification in the country. Skills certification is the process of assessing the skills of workers or individuals based on the skills standards or a set of competencies for the occupation. All Certified Workers registered in TESDA will be linked to certain occupations nationwide. 

In further collaboration with TESDA, 9 beneficiaries of the total graduates are now preparing their credentials for a job awaiting them in the Middle East. This opportunity is made possible by SMI’s partner agency, the Greengate International Manpower Company.
