Irusin in Tagaytay, Cavite, and Baseco Tondo, Manila, by bringing them to the Christmas Village in Britanny-Crosswinds, an idyllic residential property in the said city.

2nd Skills-Up Training for OFWs Launched By Villar Foundation

OFWs around the world still contribute an important  portion of the GDP of the country however there is a number of them that are abused, underpaid and sent back with empty handed. Though many of them find it hard to find work locally and unable to start a business. The Villar Foundation, led by its Managing Director Cynthia Villar, launched the 2nd OFW Skills-up Training recently in Masibay, Las Piñas.

Villar Foundation Extend Help to Repatriated OFWs

With optimistic views on the economy of the Philippines, and the financial crisis in some European countries like Greece and Spain, many OFWs are being repatriated back to the country. However, they would usually come home empty handed due to the cost of going back, and even some of them were victims of abuse from their employers. 

Its great to hear NGOs like the Villar Foundation to help our fellow Pinoy to come back home safe and sound. But it does not only end there because they would also extend an additional assistance in the form of livelihood package to help them start with small yet practical businesses.
