Last year, the Villar Foundation took their OFW assistance program notches higher by organizing the ‘First OFW and Family Summit: Kabuhayan Para sa Kinabukasan’ in partnership with GoNegosyo. Over 5,000 OFWs and their family members came at World Trade Center to attend talks and seminars that would equip them with necessary know-how and adopt an entrepreneurial mindset. There were also various booths that offer business ideas and opportunities.

The Villar Foundation also raffled off a house and lot from Camella Homes during the one-day summit. Foresa Morada, a wife of an OFW from Quezon City, was the lucky winner of the house and lot. She tearfully shared her experience that although her husband has been an OFW for many years, they still don’t have a house of their own since most of their earnings goes to their children’s education.
