Microsoft says PC purchase program for OFWs readied

MICROSOFT Philippines, in collaboration with the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), is set to announce a special PC purchase program targeting overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).

Microsoft Philippines said that it will soon launch the "Konek ka diyan!" project, an awareness initiative aimed at showing how information technology can bring OFWs and their families together despite the distance between them.

The highlight of the project will be a special PC purchase program under the OWWA's loan facility for the OFW families who are interested in investing in their own personal computers, the local subsidiary said.

Microsoft Philippines gave more than five million pesos in a grant to a Filipino migrant workers' IT training course in February 2006.

The latest grant would go to the building of new training centers in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, La Union, and Cagayan de Oro.

Microsoft Philippines, through its Tulay: An Unlimited Potential Program for Overseas Filipinos, has

provided OWWA around four million pesos in cash grant and three million pesos worth of software in 2004.

Microsoft Philippines' Tulay program is part of a global initiative designed to provide technology skills to under-served individuals.

The Tulay project has already established IT training centers in Malaysia, Singapore, Pasay City, Cebu, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and soon Cagayan de Oro, La Union, and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Since the start of the Tulay program, Microsoft Philippines said that OWWA has trained around 3,000 Filipino migrant workers, according to Mae Rivera-Moreno, PR community affairs manager.

There are more than seven million overseas Filipino workers around the world and 200,000 to 300,000 more leaving every month, government data shows.
