Hi everyone-

I have been reading all the problems of the many OFWorkers here in Japan,
like sending money back home to your families, and other “nayamis”.

Here is my first suggestion -
What if you let me compile all “your sama nang loob” - like you send them all to me by email… like if you are writing to your family… of course using different names or aliases -
Anyway- just a thought- anybody want to share your letter - address it to -
Dear City ; ) - and send me an email through TF.

I hope we can lots of letters - any topic - to make a book -
or maybe a documentary…(alth ough I cannot promise on this…)

I will compile all these data - and send it to a publication - or a newspaper - or to some press people friends at home… and see if we can have it published or printed somewhere…

Why? I think we have to educated the Filipinos back home - and that includes all the families of the OFWorkers…

They think- people in Japan = Money…
But they do not know the hardships that come with every single yen you send back home…

The Philippines needs education - we have to make them aware -
why don’t we write a book?

I have a background in research- and communication -
we can make it a real documentation…

who knows eventually - maybe a documentary?
Maybe my few friends in the media would be interested?
I cannot promise, but I can ask them.
(By the way, my other job is film-tv coordinator)

Awareness - that is what the Filipino family needs - in the process, you as the OFW will be more appreciated…

— to make it short —
my first proposal - let us gather data - make a book, then later maybe a documentary for t.v.

---- if we do have enough materials — I will post the next steps and the next proposal… for this exciting project.

But in the meantime, I will wait for your response - then take it from there.

I think this is a good idea!

If they will be informed about what is really going on, with CLARITY, like a book and a detailed documentary, it might make a difference. Their apathetic and cynical attitudes might change into a loving, caring character. :slight_smile:

good idea … sama ako diyan

i had a suggestion

the easiest way to gather data is to make questionaire about the facts you wanted to know, or making a poll, every active willing members will surely share their answers and participation, puwede din i print out ang questionaire then pass it to our filipino neighbors and let them sign.

Acutally kung maghanap ka sa Forum na ito madami ka nang makikita. May mga super haba na threads dito at di ka mauubusan ng material. Pwede ka sigurong magumpisa doon.

Thanks - I thought no one was interested.

The book or compilation of experiences can help educated the Filipinos back home. To make them appreciate all of their family members who are abroad working hard to send them money etc…

This is for the positive side of it, for awareness…

This thread has been here for so long but thanks to you… it is alive again.

I even already forgot what this was about… :slight_smile:

Who knows, if the book sells- we can donate it to the less fortunate or help the less fortunate back home…

Anyway, that is the next step…

Thanks guys -
