Japan helps OFW Women and Kids

Here is another good gesture from the Government of Japan through the Embassy of Japan in the Philippines. They will launch a capacity-buliding project worth more than US$78,000 to extend and improve the livelihood former migrant Filipino women workers and their children. I hope that the returnees will take the opportunity to improve their economic potential during these challenging times. Read below.

Japan aids RP women, kids

MANILA, Philippine—Japan is funding a project that would extend livelihood and capacity-building programs to Filipino women who are former migrant workers in Japan and their Japanese-Filipino children, the Japanese Embassy in Manila announced yesterday.

Japan’s Ambassador to the Philippines Makoto Katsura attended the turnover of “The Project for Building Capacities of Women and their Japanese-Filipino Children” to the Development Action for Women Network (Dawn) headed by executive director Carmelita G. Nuqui in Manila on Friday.

The project amounting to $78,795 (approximately P3.6 million) will be funded through the Japanese embassy’s Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP).
