OWWA opens nominations foe 2018 model OFW families
by PIA release

The Overseas Workers and Welfare Administration-Cordillera has opened the nominations for this year’s search for Model OFW Family of the Year Awards (MOFYA).

The MOFYA search, dubbed as “Parangal sa Matatag na Pamilyang Pilipino,”  aims to recognize the contribution of Overseas Filipino Workers in the economic and social development of the country as well as the OFW families’ efforts to become successful in life, in maintaining family solidarity and wholesomeness, and being active members of the community despite the social cost of migration.

Nominees will be judged by a regional search and selection committee composed of public and private sector representatives based on how the families remained wholesome and how they maintained their solidarity.

They will also be judged on their community involvement and the success of the OFW and/or family members in education or in their profession and will be evaluated based on how they managed their finances.

Special awards will be given to the OFW family with outstanding achievement in community projects and in entrepreneurship.

Nominations are open to the land and sea-based OFWs who are currently working abroad or on vacation in the Philippines.

Anyone can nominate an OFW family as long as he can present an endorsement of family solidarity from local government units, civil society organizations, religious groups, and community organizations.

Aside from the plaque of recognition and prizes for the 2018 MOFYA regional winners, they will also earn the right to represent the region in the national MOFYA tilt.

OWWA OIC Regional Director Evelyn Laranang said that recognizing OFWs who are also major contributors to nation building is part of the continuing program of the government, along with ensuring the protection of the rights and welfare of Filipino migrant workers and their families.
