WIMLER Foundation: At A Glance
WIMLER Foundation Hong Kong Ltd. was officially registered in 2011 as a non-profit and charitable organization. Our primary objective is to support the capacity building and empowerment of migrant communities regardless of nationalities and to promote cultural diversity in Hong Kong-based on mutual respect and solidarity.
We achieve this by enhancing and harnessing the capacities of migrants and their organizations to become more active transnational citizens through conduct of gender-sensitive capacity- building program.

We prepare OFWs in their reintegration back to the Philippines.
Our OFWs who have been working for years in Hong Kong often overlook the process of reintegration back to their families in the Philippines. Some of the most common problems are the lack of savings, planning where to get their funds after leaving abroad.
We started a yearly program, the Ateneo Leadership and Social Entrepreneurship Training Program in partnership with the Ateneo University School of Government (ASoG), Overseas Filipinos Society for the Promotion of Economic Security (OFSPES), the Social Enterprises Development Partnerships Inc. (SEDPI) and several government institutions, the Philippine Consulate, the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO), the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) and the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO).
