GAWAD KALINGA PROGRAMS

GAWAD KALINGA IS AN AWARD-WINNING NON-PROFIT ORGANISATION
WORKING TO ERADICATE POVERTY FOR 5 MILLION FAMILIES BY 2024.

 

Gawad Kalinga or GK is a non-profit organisation that is working to end poverty for 5 Million Families by 2024. They do this using a multi-levelled approach in empowering the poorest of the poor. GK is non-partisan and partners up with LGUs as well as private individuals and companies. These parties help by donating land, money or services in helping the poorest of the poor.

Initially GK was known for the homes they were building through volunteer efforts and donations given by many companies. When they approach a community, the people of the community have to attend values formation classes. These classes help teach these less fortunate people values such as Hard work, a sense of community, caring for the environment, and more. At the same time, these individuals have to do their part and give some sweat equity and help in building the community houses. Based on their performance, they are awarded a house where their family can live in.

It doesn’t end there. Once they are rewarded homes, they also have to pay it forward and continue to help the rest of their community by continuing with their service. This is so that others can also feel the same empowerment which they have received through their efforts.

It doesn’t end there for GK either. After the shelter program, they continue to empower their beneficiaries by providing them with channels for better health, education, skills for livelihood opportunities and skills for food availability.  It is only when the impoverished people are able to empower themselves, help themselves and have the confidence to help the others in the community is the poverty cycle ended.
