This study assessed the extent of effectiveness of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4P’s) on education and welfare of selected pupil recipients in Rosario, Batangas. The status of effectiveness is measured using the health/nutritional and educational welfare. Whereas, different constraints encountered by recipients were measured and identified. The research locale of this study included selected grade V and VI pupils and parents-respondents in 3 big public elementary schools in Rosario East District and 3 big public elementary schools in Rosario West District during the school year 2020-2021. The descriptive method of research was employed in this study. It also focused on the policy improvement to be proposed to enhance the program for the benefit of pupil recipients. Data obtained were statistically tested with the use of weighted mean, T-test, and Pearson Product Moment of Correlation Coefficient. The result of the study showed that there is a high significant difference on the assessment of pupils and parent-respondents on the effectiveness of 4P’s. Furthermore, there is a high significant difference between the assessment of student-respondents and parent-respondents on the constraints of effectiveness of 4P’s. There is a high significant relationship between the health/nutritional and educational welfare and constraints on the effectiveness of the program. Negative correlation is obtained. It is recommended that the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) must enhance 4P’s in terms of benefits of pupil recipients. DSWD must increase cash grants for educational welfare of pupil recipients and control the family educational expenditure by coordinating with teachers.
