SAN JOSE DE BUENAVISTA, antique – The Antik-Provincial Youth and Development Agency (PYDO) is aiming to release educational aid to 22,340 undergraduate beneficiaries in the province ahead of the start of the March 25 voting ban.

The PYDO head of the ancient provincial government, Irish Manlapaz, said in an interview on Friday that they started releasing the educational aid of PHP 5,000 each for 1,000 students living in San Jose de Buenavista on February 14.

“There were 22,340 students who had applied for the provincial government’s educational aid for the first semester of this 2021-2022 school year,” she said.

They are currently preparing to provide cash assistance to another 1,000 students in Sibalom next week, and other cities in the province will soon follow.

“The number of students who applied for the education grant also varies from city to city,” Manlapaz said.

Educational Aid aims to help students with their online tuition expenses, book purchases, and other needs.

“For those who have not yet received their support, we kindly ask for your understanding as it will be done as soon as possible,” she said. (PNA)
