NRCO prepares future Novo Vizcayano OFW entrepreneurs

In line with the National Reintegration Center for OFWs (NRCO) mandate to assist returning OFWs & their families in their reintegration needs as they settle back in the Philippines, the NRCO Regional Office 02 in coordination with the LGU Public Employment Service Office (LGU PESO) of Dupax del Norte conducted Entrepreneurship Development Training (EDT) to qualified returning OFWs in preparation for the implementation of Starter Kit through the “Balik Pinay! Balik Hanapbuhay! Program”.


DOLE RO2 Regional Director Manuel C. Roldan explained in his message during the opening program that the challenge to OFWs who are working abroad and aspiring for better income has always resulted to a bitter life as the social cost of migration.  “Despite of this situation, our government has always been convincing distressed OFWs that there are still opportunities back in the Philippines”, he added.

RD Roldan also stressed that everyone has the ability to become a wealthy entrepreneur by starting to believe that one’s wish of becoming rich is the determination to leave poor life.  Further, he also enlightened the minds of each participant that realizing a dream of becoming an entrepreneur needs a mindset by not believing that only selected people could become rich.

Meanwhile, NRCO RO2 focal person explained during the training that the “Balik Pinay! Balik Hanapbuhay! Program” enables women OFW returnees to start and to operate livelihood undertaking for self-employment by providing them livelihood skills training and the distribution of the starter kits to start a livelihood project of their own.On the other hand, Mayor Timothy Joseph E. Cayton thanked the DOLE and the NRCO for extending support through said appropriate program to his needy constituents so that they could cope again with their frustrations of having a supposedly good life as a result of the hardships of life abroad.

About 50 eligible beneficiaries coming from the municipality of Dupax del Norte who are returning women OFWs were invited to join the EDT giving priority to those who are displaced by the hostilities of their employers, or victims of illegal recruitment and trafficking and other distressed and displaced women household service workers (HSWs).
