DSWD launches Oplan Balik Eskwela for 4Ps
by DSWD release

The Department of Social Welfare and Development in collaboration with the Department of Education will launch an advocacy campaign on June 3 to ensure that children beneficiaries of the  Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) are sent back to school.

Dubbed Bata Balik Eskwela (BBE) with tagline “Edukasyon ay mahalaga ating ipaalala, the campaign aims to encourage the children beneficiaries to enroll back to school and teach them the value of education. The campaign also aims to address the number of 4Ps children beneficiaries identified as not attending school (NAS). The Pantawid Pamilya operationally termed these children as “consistently not attending school” or those who have not been attending school for at least three consecutive months in a given school year.

“The campaign is a strategy to motivate our children beneficiaries in the region who stopped from school due to various factors. Our staff will be working closely with our partner agencies to provide interventions to the needs of these children. We are hopeful that through these initiatives, our children will be inspired to continue going to school.” Regional Director Janet Armas said.

4Pscoordinator Fatima Florendo added that partners at the provincial and municipal operations offices will also be coordinating with DepEd to conduct school and home visits to NAS children. “We will meet parents of these children through home visits and through the monthly Family Development Sessions.”

In the Cordillera, 4Ps has recorded 11,125 NAS children as of March 2019, which is about nine percent of the 116,389 children beneficiaries being monitored for education compliance. Working children, lack of interest to go to school, and parental decision are among the top issues that caused the children beneficiaries to stop going school.

The DSWD’s BBE will converge with the DepEd’s Oplan Balik Eswkela on June 3-7, which aims to ensure that students are properly enrolled and able to attend school during the opening of classes. DSWD and DepEd will conduct school visits region-wide on the said dates.
