Behind every successful OFW…

“Behind every successful Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) is a people-family-oriented recruitment agency” —Gracia Amor

Next to the Almighty Father, who else contributes to the success of an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW), but the people behind the recruitment agency that deployed our kabayan for overseas work.

Ang hindi pagpapabaya ng isang recruitment agency ay malaking bagay upang maisakatuparan ng isang kabayan ang kanyang mga pangarap. Paano ba natin masasabi na ang isang OFW ay successful o matagumpay?

Sa aking palagay, kapag nalalabanan ng isang OFW ang lungkot at hirap ng kalooban na malayo sa piling ng kanyang mga mahal sa buhay na nasa Pilipinas, iyon ang pinaka unang tagumpay niya. Ikalawa marahil ay hindi siya nagpapadala sa tukso na nakapaligid sa kanya.

Ikatlo na siyang pangunahing dahilan kung bakit nais magtrabaho bilang OFW si kabayan – nakakapagpadala siya ng sapat na remittance sa pamilya niyang binubuhay.

A writer must be objective and not subjective. True. But in a very inspiring case like this, I think I will be understood. Me and Al Alamia, the recruitment agency that deployed me here in Kuwait a few years ago, still maintained an open communication with each other. And during my unexpected, unplanned homecoming to the Philippines last December 2012 to received award, they gave me full support.

During my visit at the training center, I met some 200 Filipinas working hard to learn the steps on how to become efficient household service workers (HSWs), many were from far flung provinces of our country.

Sa aking isinagawang free departure talk sa mga batch na paalis at daang-daang trainee, naibahagi ko sa kanila ang ilang tips kung paano sila magkakaroon ng maayos na pamumuhay at kung paano nila pag ingatan ang kanilang mga sarili sa bansang dayuhan.

Mam Perlie (left) and Mam Dolor (right) personally came to the airport to see us (myself and 10 other kabayans) before our flight back to the Philippines. Ganyan po sana mag alaga ang isang agency.

    I agree much, Aside from god’s guidance, napaka-importante rin ang role ng recruitment agency sa mga OFW. So dapat, anyone na gustong mag-work abroad must see to it na accredited ang recruitment agency sa DFA at OWWA.

    You are blessed to find an agency who did not let you down and who has your back. so many stories which i heard personally who have been lied to by so many agencies from the Philippines. Ang nkakagalit lang, kapwa mo oa pilipino un nanloloko or nadadaya at hindi sumusunod sa mga contracts or not that transparent without event considering gaano kalaki ang sakripisyo na maging OFW. 🙁 🙁 🙁

    OFWs shouldn’t be downgraded or belittled. They’re also dedicated and hard workers. And because of that attitude and virtue, they’re blessed and become succesful
