SM Cares for Overseas Filipino Workers

Our SM Global Pinoy Program is our way of honouring our modern heroes by serving them and helping improve their lives by bringing them closer to home.

Global Pinoy Centers have been put up in several SM Malls for Filipinos with family members working abroad. We aim to help them stay connected and soften the social cost of migration by offering a place to communicate with relatives for free with chat and voice applications. We have also added BDO remittance and foreign exchange services for inside the centers for convenience.

We partnered with government agencies and relevant groups to provide our OFWs not only relevant deployment and overseas employment information, but also pre-departure counselling to prepare them and their families.

To further improve their plight, the company partnered with various agencies to benefit the OFWs and their families, including NGOs that give seminars on how to manage their money and start a business.

In December 2013, as a way of giving back to the Filipino overseas worker, SM Global Pinoy and SM Cinema launched the SM Global Pinoy Free Movie Day, an initiative that is part of the SM Supermalls’ nationwide event “Pamaskong Handog sa OFW”.
