OWWA Membership

OWWA Membership is a tool to avail major programs and services offered by our welfare agency in giving them protection and benefits while working outside the country.



Our national government is serious enough to reach out our fellow kababayans who are at risk. Because of this OWWA Membership, members are protected and benefited initiated from the umbrella of the Department of Labor and Employment.
The OWWA is a membership institution. As such, its programs, projects and services are geared towards safeguarding and promoting the welfare and interests of its members.
