OWWA holds Financial Literacy Seminar for OFW and their families in Central Luzon
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga-Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) concluded 2013 with a financial literacy seminar for 278 Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and their families in Central Luzon.
“The two-day undertaking, which coincided with the observance of OFW Family Day, is part of our on-going commitment to help our OFWs and their families learn about the financial issues that affect their day-to-day lives,” OWWA Regional Director Maria Lourdes Reyes said.
“Our aim is to help dependents learn how to measure and manage the money their OFW relatives make and develop an appreciation and value to what they work hard for. It also intends to teach the OFW family the need and options of saving, holding and making additional money and help them plan, create a personal mission and set a time-line for their accomplishment,” Reyes added.
Apart from financial literacy, OWWA has also conducted last year trainings on entrepreneurial development, values re-orientation and organizational development in partnership with Family Welfare Offices and OFW Family Circles. (Carlo Lorenzo J. Datu)
