Written by ofwjc on . Posted in About Us

The OFW Journalism Consortium is a global non-profit media service reporting on the migration experience of Filipinos as well as policies and other issues that concerns the overseas Filipino workers. The Consortium now enters on its ninth year as a global nonprofit media service, servicing most media outfits both here and abroad. Our stories are republished by media outfits, making the Consortium one of the most trusted sources of news on OFW issues.

Since its creation in 2002 as a media advocacy project of a research-based NGO, the Consortium has an increasing number of media carriers of its stories, and the overseas Filipinos who read the free articles through their e-groups and the website. The existence of this international migration-focused media service is one of a kind in the world.

The Consortium is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Consortium distributes free newspackets to overseas Filipinos, Filipino-run media outfits and stakeholders in the country’s migrant sector—all of whom are based in the Philippines and abroad. The OFWJC also conducts extra-editorial activities to raise the level of discourse on international migration issues in the country.
