Capacity building activities, targeted to leaders of Filipino
migrants and Home Town Associations (HTAs) aimed to empower them to
support interventions that would maximize the potential of migration
and sustainable community development in the Philippines.
Special attention on the
gender dimension of Filipino migration has been provided, given the
fact that majority of Filipinos in Italy are women employed as
domestic workers, caregivers and baby-sitters.
Training and awareness
raising activities have been provided to community leaders with
- Financial literacy
- Organizing and leadership
- Project formulation and management
- Social cost of migration
- Migrants rights and duties
- Reproductive health
