Top 10 OFW Destination Countries





Why there are so many Filipinos leaving the country for work abroad?

I checked on the data, a rather old data from the POEA database, 
and in 2012 alone, a total of 2,083,223 new hires at rehires are registered.

Some migrate with their families, some pursue their studies, but a big portion, numbering to 10 Million or more went abroad in almost, always singular reason...



better future.
