About Pinoy Wise OFTV
Atikha and the Philippine Consortium on Migration and Development (PHILCOMDEV) organized the PINOY WISE MOVEMENT (Pinoy Worldwide Initiative on Savings Investment and Entrepreneurship) an information, value formation and education campaign to encourage OFWs and their families to save and invest the hard earned money wisely.
To augment the various financial literacy seminars and financial literacy campaign that are being conducted abroad and in the Philippines, it was seen that a TV program that can be downloaded / viewed via the internet will be a good vehicle to compliment the financial literacy campaign of PINOY WISE.
“PINOY WISE: Maging Wise sa Pamamahala ng Pera, Maging Wise sa Pangangalaga ng Pamilya”. This core message recognize the need to address not only financial issues but also family issues that drain the resources of the migrants.
“PINOY WISE: Pagbabalik Paghandaan, Upang Bukas May Daratnan”. This core message emphasizes the need to prepare for their reintegration and enable them to achieve their goals for migration. This is to address the problem of migrants who despite of higher wage and long years abroad, 70% of them are unable to save for their long term goals.
