When Sec. Erwin Tulfo declared to the public that the DSWD would be distributing educational monetary support, everyone was startled. He claimed that applicants for financial aid can be elementary, high school, or college students.

Amounts ranging from 1,000 to 4,000 pesos will be given to all qualified students from elementary to college.

  • Elementary - 1000 pesos

  • High School - 2000 pesos

  • Senior High School - 3000 pesos

  • College - 4000 pesos

The qualified students, according to Sec. Erwin Tulfo, are working students, single parents or children of single parents, breadwinners, student children of OFWs, and students who have been afflicted by the disaster.

Requirements

There are only two items you need to bring: a photocopy of your registration form from the school you attend and a back-to-back scan or photocopy of your valid school ID.

Just yesterday, we instantly took care of the prerequisites for DSWD's educational assistance applications. Just in case, we printed two copies of the enrollment form and the student ID. My companions and I discussed the importance of arriving in line early because we know that there's a lot of students who will apply too and that the line would be lengthy.

And it turns out that our hunch about the line's length was accurate. Even though it was only six in the morning, the line had already gotten so long that it almost reached our school. We were in the middle of the line, which was extremely congested, and I could hardly breathe.

This morning's sight is practically impossible for automobiles to navigate due to the large crowds. Thankfully, there are police officers on duty who manage the situation by enforcing crowd control and clearing parked motorcycles off the road to avoid obstructing traffic.

People of all ages and PWDs are lining up to apply for the DSWD's educational monetary aid. We all patiently wait in line since it is very beneficial to ourselves, our families, and our academic endeavors.

An announcement was made at around seven in the morning by a DSWD employee who was holding a megaphone. According to him, they can only hold up to 100 people at once. They also gave out numbers, and those who received one could wait; however, those without one were sent home because they wouldn't accept them either.

We had given up and were about to head home, but a my friend urged us to stay because we had arrived early and they had stated that the DSWD office is open until five o'clock, meaning that we might be accommodated after they finish with the first 100 people in line.

And our suspicions turned out to be correct. Around eleven in the morning, when the first 100 participants had finished, a DSWD employee returned and again provided the number. I am number 96 and am extremely glad because I know that my hunger and exhaustion were worth it because I was fortunate enough to make it to the second 100 people who would be given the opportunity to apply for cash assistance.

I wasn't able to eat breakfast or lunch, so I was quite hungry. Fortunately, a mother was there and she provided us with biscuits and water after sensing our hunger. I am very grateful to her.

Finally! Our long wait is over, and all of our effort has paid off thanks to the financial aid we got from the DSWD. Even though standing up injured our backs, we were really grateful for the grace.

Thank you so much, DSWD.


Thank you for your time and interest in reading all the way to the very end of my article. Have a great day everyone!

Thank you! Sa akin naman walang masyadong tinanong, tinanong lang ako kung anong year level tsaka kung anong tinitake na course. Pero yung iba tinanong daw sila kung ilan ang may trabaho sa kanilang pamilya.
