Rappler, SEDPI partner to empower OFWs
MANILA, Philippines – To empower overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) through financial literacy, Rappler and Social Enterprise Development Partnerships Incorporated (SEDPI) entered into a partnership on Thursday, August 4.
The partnership aims to produce content that will help OFWs manage their finances better and reach their financial goals.
SEDPI, a social enterprise that provides financial literacy training to low-income OFWs in 15 countries worldwide, will provide research data and financial advice while Rappler will help spread their advocacy on social media and to its OFW readers.
The partnership also brings to Rappler readers #UsapangPera, financial literacy webisodes hosted by SEDPI president and personal finance expert Mariel Vincent Rapisura and beauty queen Maria Venus Raj. Each webisode will be released on Rappler every Friday at 7 pm. (Watch the first episode of #UsapangPera here.)
OFW readers may also now ask advice or send their questions about managing their finances, investing, and dealing with money problems like debt to firstname.lastname@example.org. Rapisura himself will be responding to them in his new Rappler column, #OFWTips.
Rapisura and Rappler managing editor Glenda M. Gloria formally inked the partnership at the Rappler office in Pasig City.
"We are excited to begin our relationship with Rappler because it provides us the leverage to spread our financial literacy advocacy," Rapisura said. "With the partnership, we envision to empower millions of Filipinos here and abroad through relevant, practical and entertaining content."
Gloria agreed, adding that Rappler "is always looking for ways to better engage our community and make our content relevant to them." – Rappler.com
