This report presents the results from a quasi-experimental (pre- and post-intervention assessment) evaluation of a parenting programme delivered to the beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) in the Philippines.

4Ps is a nationwide conditional cash transfer programme aimed at breaking intergenerational transfer of poverty by supporting poor households with cash transfers and encouraging them to invest in the health, nutrition and education of their children. This study follows 465 dyads of children and caregivers for a period of 13 months. Of the 465 dyads, 232 dyads formed part of an intervention group that received a parenting programme in addition to the 4Ps cash transfer, while 233 dyads in the comparison group only received the cash transfer. The focus of the study is to understand whether the parenting programme resulted in changing parental behaviour and whether there was an impact on the social and emotional development of children.
