ATIKHA conducts financial literacy for OFWs, seafarers and their families. This helps to guide them not only in financial management but also in family management.
Training includes a 2-day financial literacy seminar offered to OFWS and seafarers and whoever manages the funds in the family. Family is important as the success or failure of the migrants depends to a large extent on whoever is managing family funds in the Philippines.
The seminar includes
- a hands on training on budgeting, goal setting and financial planning
- focus on on savings for investment and retirement, entrepreneurship and borrowing
The seminar also provides information on the various family issues that drain their resources and provides tips on family management to address the growing social cost of migration through group sharing and peer counselling.
