Abstract

This study attempts to analyze the impact of employment of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) on the academic performance of their children. One specific goal for this study is to awaken, encourage and challenge the government through the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) to formulate policies and programs (if none) as early as now and strengthen them if there are existing policies and programs in accordance to the needs of the respondents with the assistance and close collaboration of the International Organization for Migration (IOM). This study also seeks to generate awareness to the International Organization for Migration (IOM) regarding the above mentioned problem and in formulating better programs which would also assist distressed children with similar circumstances worldwide.

This study is conducted to seek answers to the following questions: 1. What is the personal profile of the respondents as to sex, age, and personality traits? 2. What are the concerns faced by OFW children studying in universities within Intramuros? 3. What are the factors that affect the academic performance of OFW children in terms of: a. Economic Status of the family b. Employment Status c. Social Status d. Marital Status 4. How do the respondents assess their relationship towards their parents working overseas?

Keywords: OFW, Philippines, migrant workers, overseas workers, education
