In supporting overseas Filipino workers this pandemic, GCash seeks to discuss and educate about financial literacy through its multi-wide educational platform, Globe GoLearn.
Through Globe GoLearn Program, GCash has lined up lessons on remittance spending and income management to guide OFWs to achieve financial stability.
About 10 million OFWs help drive the Philippine economy through the remittances they send back. However, the ongoing pandemic finds OFWs troubled by employment challenges. Thus, financial literacy is vital to secure their future and retirement.
“We, at GCash, want to thank you for everything you’ve done for the country and how you contribute to the economy,” said Martha Sazon, GCash President and CEO.
“To honor the everyday sacrifices that you make, we want to let you know how GCash can make your lives a bit easier in return,” she added.
GoLearn launched the webinar with veteran journalist and news anchor Korina Sanchez as the host, featuring GCash executives Jong Layug and Jules Abalos with various supporters and backers. They were also joined by Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) Administrator Atty. Hans Leo Cacdac in the panel discussion.
As its continuous partnership, TESDA has also strengthened Globe’s initiatives in upskilling for repatriated OFWs via the TESDA Abot Lahat ang OFWs during the pandemic. The programs are supported by Globe through zero-rating of TOP and providing communications support for TESDA to reach more OFWs to promote upskilling courses.
This initiative is part of Globe supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal No. 4, promoting quality education.
GCash has been providing OFWs a seamless way to send money, pay bills, save, secure loans, and so much more all in one platform at the comfort of their homes.
