COMMUNITIES IN RIZAL

GK Sampaloc
GK COMMUNITY
Tanay, Rizal
Unity, nation-building, creating holistic models for development… these are the goals of GAWAD KALINGA. And because of GK Sampaloc, and other GK communities all over the country, we can achieve these goals. GK Sampaloc is situated in Barangay Sampaloc, which is one of the 19 barangays comprising the municipality of Tanay in the province of Rizal. It sits on rolling hills straddling the southern tip of Mount Susong Dalaga with a population of 17,271 in year 2000. This three (3) hectares property, where this new GK village will rise, was donated by Mrs. Ma. Dolores A. Arboleda, an 83 year old widow. She saw Gawad Kalinga as the best vessel to fulfill her wish, and that is… to benefit the poorest of the poor. She envisios a community of the underprivileged rising up from her property, initially uncouth and needy but later transformed, through GAWAD KALINGA, into a God-fearing, civic-minded and self-sufficient community. This GK village was named GK Ave Maria in honor of the Blessed Mother whom she devotedly adore. This GK community is also known as the Ave Maria Esguerra GK Village.
