Embassy Conducts Hands-On Massage Therapy Training for OFWs in Brunei DarussalamPosted: 19 Nov 2009 10:40 PM PST

20 November 2009 – The Philippine Embassy in Brunei Darussalam, through the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO), conducted a free training session for Filipino expatriates in Brunei last November 15.

The activity was sponsored by the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA).

The training program aimed at equipping the participants with new knowledge, skills and techniques on body massage; teaching them the benefits of body massage; and enhancing employability options for livelihood/ income generating project in preparation for their reintegration in the Philippines.

Ms. Visallie de Jesus-Dayto, Company Director of Health Express Day Spa and Managing Director of Norain Salon at Kiulap, Brunei, acted as the resource speaker during the training. She was assisted by 12 massage therapists. Co-owner Mr. Eddy Maitimo, a Dutch national, also supported the activity for the benefit of OFWs.

In his closing remarks, Philippine Ambassador to Brunei Alexander B. Yano congratulated the 89 participants and advised them to avail themselves of the different programs offered by the Embassy, especially the training programs that offer them new knowledge and skills. He pointed out that this program was in support of the reintegration of our government to provide the OFWs other self-employment opportunities and to maximize their potentials to become entrepreneurs when they return to the Philippines.

The participants requested follow-up hands-on sessions in order for them to acquire more skills and techniques. They welcomed this training as a practical program, for which the massage techniques can also benefit their own family members. END
