Vircelina Suarez, a Pantawid Parent Leader and recipient of Sustainable Livelihood Program from Barangay Ilang, Davao City confidently underscores how her participation in government programs improved her life. “Conscientiously, we observed the rules of the program. I attended Family Development Sessions which taught us to become better parents and better citizens. We have learned a lot and our community is more united now.  If not for Pantawid Pamilya my children wouldn’t have finished school. We are very grateful to DSWD especially now that our community is a recipient of a housing project initiated by DSWD, Holcim Philippines, DBCOM and our barangay. The government has done so much for us. Thank you very much.” (DSWD)
