DSWD Educational Assistance always vailable for students under AICS program

In a Senate hearing regarding the 2024 proposed budget of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Senator Christopher "Bong" Go raised inquiries to Secretary Rex Gatchalian about the implementation of the Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS) program. 

Go asked Gatchalian whether educational assistance is still consistently being provided to indigent students. 

The secretary confirmed, stating, “Isa ho ‘yan sa maraming assistance, nasa guidelines po ‘yan. Every day, may mga pumupunta sa iba't iba naming opisina na humihingi ng educational assistance pero dumaraan po ‘yan sa assessment ng ating mga social workers.”

Gatchalian responded, assuring that the department will take the necessary steps to address any issue in the implementation of the AICS program and ensure that the intended beneficiaries will not be compromised. 

Expressing his support for Gatchalian, Go looks forward to continue working with the DSWD in helping particularly poor and indigent Filipinos
