DSWD-10 helps children affected by child labor

A mother registers her child to become a beneficiary of the educational grant from DSWD.

Child Labor is a social problem affecting many children in the Philippines. It is a form of exploitation that deprives children of their childhood by forcing them through any form of work, consequently interfering their ability to attend school.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office 10 (DSWD-10) condemns child labor as it affects the well-being of children, including their mental, physical, social, and moral growth.

DSWD gathers children in celebration to the World Day Against Child Labor.

In partnership with the Department of Labor and Employment-10, ChildFund Philippines, the Local Government of Maramag, Bukidnon, including the local officials of Barangays Camp 1 and Base Camp, and Kaanib Foundation, Inc., DSWD-10 gathered 54 children victimized by child labor through implementation of the Strategic Helpdesks for Information, Education, Livelihood and other Developmental Interventions (SHIELD) – a project that aims to strengthen the capacity of local government units (LGUs) in the prevention and elimination of the worst forms of child labor.

Children were given educational grants from DSWD during the World Day Against Child Labor.

The children were gathered by the local and national government institutions in celebration to the World Day Against Child Labor held last July 3, 2019 in Maramag, Bukidnon – a pilot area for the implementation of SHIELD in Region 10.

In the celebration, the children were given educational grants as a way to encourage families to send their children to school, instead of them being victimized by child labor.

4Ps mothers feed children with locally grown vegetables

Mother beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program take part in the LGU-led feeding program for children in schools.

More and more mothers who are beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) in Northern Mindanao have now started harvesting vegetables from their garden this season to prepare a menu for their children in schools.

In Bonifacio, Misamis Occidental, 4Ps mothers are now busy preparing for a feeding practice implemented in all day care centers and elementary schools of the 28 barangays weekly, which will run in the whole month of July. Every feeding day, all 4Ps beneficiaries are required by the DSWD to harvest vegetables from their backyard garden and prepare them according to the agreed menu of the week. To sustain the production of their garden, they are to plant anew after harvesting.

A child is seen surrounded by vegetables harvested by his mother and her neighbors who are 4Ps beneficiaries taking part in the feeding program.

The feeding practice of the town aims to provide nutritious food to school children which is implemented in close coordination between the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Field Office 10, Department of Education, and the Local Government Unit of Bonifacio.

4Ps beneficiaries in Lanao del Norte unite in providing nutritious food for their children.

Dave Torrefranca, Municipal Action Team leader of DSWD assigned in Bonifacio, disclosed that the practice has been going in Bonifacio town for three years now. He said all elementary schools have communal garden for the 4Ps beneficiaries after DepEd officials in Bonifacio town suggested to the Municipal Inter-Agency Committee of 4Ps to strengthen the planting of vegetables among (number of 4Ps beneficiaries) beneficiaries of the Program.

Meanwhile, all 4Ps parents in Delabayan, Kauswagan, Lanao del Norte collectively prepare and cook their produce during their respective Family Development Sessions. The grantees share them among themselves after the session.

4Ps beneficiaries maintain their own backyard garden as part of the 4Ps advocacy.

A day before a session, 4Ps mothers are seen harvesting their vegetables and agree with their cluster members on what meal to prepare. Each cluster is composed of 28 to 30 household members.

Pantawid Pamilya is a government’s poverty-reduction strategy that provides cash grants to extremely poor households aimed at helping them raise educated and healthy children aged 18 years and below.

It utilizes the Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) scheme where beneficiaries receive cash grant provided that they send their children to school, get preventive health check-up, and the parents attend the monthly Family Development Session (FDS).

Currently, Northern Mindanao has 259,675 active household beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilya.
