Help Assistance Center for Jobless OFWs

The Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) has opened the National Reintegration Center and all regional offices of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) to retrenched overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who are seeking for government livelihood assistance and job placement programs.

The help center is not only for OFWs but also for local workers. The program may either help them in setting up livelihood or income-generating projects or seeking employment, either locally or overseas, where they may be fitted.

Both displaced OFWs and local workers who want to open a business, Dole Secretary Marianito Roque said they would be initially granted an assistance package consisting of entrepreneurship counseling, training, and access to equipment.

Roque also added that the assistance was free of any charge.

Filipinos who want local employment can seek assistance from the Bureau of Local Employment or at the nearest DOLE office. For program details, workers may contact the NRCO at Tel. Nos. 528-0848 and the DOLE at 527-8000.
