Women OFWs with unfinished contracts to avail of skills enhancement

Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) specifically the women group who were unable to finish their work contracts abroad will have a chance at skills enhancement should they decide to avail of the seminar training workshop specifically designed by the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) in Eastern Visayas.

Florence Panao, OWWA information officer disclosed that OWWA-8 has launched this month a new program for OFWs known as the “Entrepreneurial Development Program” or EDP.
The program, which begun yesterday, is aimed at helping distressed, abused, and maltreated women OFWs who came home with unfinished contracts.

The said group will be taught entrepreneurial skills to help them become productive being unsuccessful working abroad.

The women will learn skills which include manicure, pedicure and foot spa services in the all-free one week live-in seminar training workshop.
OFWs who finish the training will be given the needed equipment for use in starting the business they will be engaging in.

OFWs who want to avail of the training need only to bring a copy of their contract and proof of being active member of OWWA.

The training which started yesterday had 28 participants.
