The Search for Huwarang Pamilyang Pilipino aims to recognize families who have religiously followed their co-responsibilities in the program and embody or demonstrate adopting the Filipino values and strong family ties.
The search is open to all Filipino families who are beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, married, living together and with child/children who are also recipients of the program. The family must have a good standing in the community with no derogatory records and has not been convicted of any administrative, criminal, civil case or cases involving moral turpitude in the last five (5) years. The family’s income must not be derived from gambling or any illegal resources.
The city/municipal nominees must be endorsed by either Pantawid Pamilya Parent Leaders, Barangay Captains or the Local Government Units (LGU). Each LGU are only allowed to nominate one (1) family that will serve as their official nominee.
