The DSWD will officially turn over the case folders of the 18 households who are exiting the program to the local government unit of Marikina for the required aftercare programs and services.

Other partner agencies were ready to assist graduating beneficiaries in their journey to become self-sustaining individuals through the provision of livelihood assistance, skills training, and scholarship for their children, it said.

Recent data of the DSWD's 4Ps National Program Management Office showed that from January 2020 up to June 8, 2021, a total of 24,043 households from the different regions have graduated from the program.

Households who are assessed as self-sufficient have the capacity to provide for their basic needs, stable income generated from either a permanent job or small business, ability to send their children to school, and are prepared to protect their households from sliding back to poverty.
