Sarah 12:20 AM, Jul 28, 2019


I am looking for information regarding any programs that involve overseas domestic workers. Primarily, I am interested in the content of what is taught and information on how they are developed. This can include pre-departure orientations, reintegration programs, financial literacy programs, and the overseas employment program. In other words, any programs in which domestic workers are involved or take part.

For example, any handbooks, schedules, powerpoints, or material that demonstrates what is being taught or how the programs are developed would be great. 

Thank you so much.
