The problem addressed by the campaign:
- OWWA was
created because of the constitutional mandate to guarantee the protection of
the rights of OFWs and the promotion of their interests and well-being.
organization was needed to raise money and distribute welfare and benefits to
OFWs, who often had little protection or resources available in their host
- OFWs require protection and
help with repatriation, which can be a very difficult process both economically
Conclusions and Recommendations:
and types of migration are affected by ease of repatriation. In effect, it is
always easier to get people to move for employment purposes if they know they
know they can easily return and find their way back into the economic and
social life of their country. This happens not just at a company level, but
also for countries at large. Recognizing this in advance can help create an
environment that supports freer flow of labour across national boundaries.
