OFW Empowerment Forum


To: Fellow Overseas Filipino Workers/Filipino Migrant Workers,

 

VERY SOON “OFW Empowerment Forum” will be available where we can discuss OFWs issues and concerns and “Empowering Overseas Filipinos through Economic and Political means”. 

 

 

To many migrant NGO activists, “migrant empowerment means consciousness raising”. It means enabling the migrant workers “to appreciate the causes and effects of migration on macro and microlevels; to enable them to understand the problems that migrants face in the work place and at home; and to enable them to respond to those problems by mobilizing personal and collective resources that are available to them”
