I have decided to write again about OWWAs’ OFW reintegration program. It seems that returning OFWs’ are getting interested in this program. Since I find a number of related keywords popping up in my blog search then here's what I can say:
OFW reintegration program is one of the social services and family welfare assistance being offered by OWWA. This is intended for those returning OFWs’ and their family to reintegrate to the mainstream of the Philippine society. Under this program, OWWA provides values re-education and livelihood assistance.
OWWA will facilitate the re-integration program in partnership with other agency National Livelihood Development Corporation (NLDC) with its main goal to extend loan facility for OFW and families for enterprise development.
OWWA also tied up with other government agency like Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) for business orientation and registration seminar for OFWs’ who want to become an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship development training is an active program under the OFW reintegration program through which they emphasize on counselling, entrepreneurial orientation and business planning.
Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) on the other hand also established National Reintegration Center for OFW (NRCO) for which under this banner they set up a Micro Business Incubation Center for displaced and disadvantaged workers and OFWs’ families who are willing to start livelihood and lead productive lives.
