  2. 2. INTRODUCTION “ Do you agree with me when I say that we, Filipinos, are a loving people? “ Yes, we are! For love is the main reason why OFWs are now working abroad” “ OFWs want to give better future to their loved ones”
  3. 3. INTRODUCTION “ But is it not ironic that OFWs and their families are now separated physically because of this love? “ How then can OFWs come home so that they are back together with their loved ones once more?” “ The key is through reciprocal love by the members of the family of the OFWs”
  4. 4. Map to Financial Freedom “ Wealth is having the money to fund one’s lifestyle at any given time” %
