On the average, OFWs are away from their families 3x longer than they expected.
The OFW Journey with Beam&Go
We aim to close this gap by helping OFWs reach their next goal – one step at a time.
The OFW decides to depart Philippines armed with hopes and dreams for her family. But along with these, she is anxious of what is ahead of her as she leaves. Her journey will be filled with loneliness and she fears of what will be in store for her after her contract ends and she returns home to her family.
Year 1 – 2
Beam&Go joins the OFW on her journey. Within our ecosystem, we equip the OFW with tools that she needs to budget her earnings, save money, and make financial plans with her family. Through skills development opportunities, she is also empowered to pursue entrepreneurship or other gainful employment in the Philippines.
End of Year 2
The OFW returns home after her contract ends. She has enough funds in her digital bank account. She has new skills that can be used to start her own business in her hometown, or look for a better job there or elsewhere. But most importantly, she is reunited with her family.
Beyond Year 2
Throughout her journey, the OFW achieves family resiliency and financial security. Together with her family, they move forward into the future and reach their next goals.
Nenita Oliveros is a 54-yo Domestic Helper in Singapore. She has been working there for 12 years now to support her two sons back in the Philippines. However, she still feels anxious about going home and potentially returning to a life of poverty and desperation.
She knows she is not prepared as she does not have any savings or plans for a business when she returns. She needs help in reaching her next goal.
Beam&Go has been helping OFWs like Nenita. Nenita started by purchasing a Noche Buena package for her family through our Marketplace. Since then, she has become one of the first users of our Wallet and she has been participating in our focus group discussions and usability interviews. We treat our relationship with Beamers like Nenita as a vital element in guiding the evolution of our services and the value we bring to our stakeholders.
Our Newest Project:
The Beam&Go Academy
The lack of employable skills and sustainable opportunities is a key obstacle for OFWs in coming back home permanently. Our answer to this is the Beam&Go Academy which will be a user-friendly and technologically-advanced educational platform. Through this, we pledge to provide OFWs and their families practical and impactful courses coupled with a job bank and entrepreneurial support to empower them as they re-establish their lives back home.
