Highlights

The issue of child poverty goes beyond the mere lack of income or assets. Using data from national surveys and administrative records from government agencies, this report analyses the multiple and interacting factors that cause child poverty in the Philippines.

The report also looks into the effectiveness of the Philippine government’s biggest social protection programme, the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), in addressing child poverty.
