A long-time Filipina nanny named Helen Mata Adducul recently received the title of “Household Manager of the Year” in recognition of her dedication and perseverance. Her ability to send all seven of her children to school thanks to years of hard work, however, was her greatest accomplishment.

One of her children chose to become a lawyer, another a civil engineer, and others chose to become teachers, accountants, farmers, architects, and doctors (the latter two are still in school). The aspirations of many overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), who are frequently hailed as modern-day heroes for leaving their homes to provide for their families futures, are reflected in this success story. For the sake of their families, working abroad is not a choice but rather a necessity.

The sacrifices and suffering are even greater for mothers like Adducul who must leave their own children behind to work abroad and look after another family. But when their children graduate from college, when they buy a small plot of land or a house, or when they start a microbusiness that provides a living wage, all those years of toil and separation from their loved ones are worth it.
