GK Binanuahan
GK COMMUNITY
San Jose, Camarines Sur
    A Gawad Kalinga site that is located in the slopes of the hilly areas of Lagonoy, Kadahoman GK site is covered with green leaves from the plants and trees and the mountainous view that many describe as breath taking. This Gawad Kalinga site is a favorite resting area for a group of joggers in the town of Lagonoy because of its view and atmosphere. The development of this site started early 2005 to address the poverty situation in the town of Lagonoy. The construction of the units were completed late 2009 and all the infrastructure was finished by early 2011.
    The site is home to ___ families who happened to be typhoon victims. This GK site is also known for welcoming the diversity of faith having 3 different religions inside the site. Majority of the people here are Roman Catholic, some are members of the “Iglesia Ni Cristo” and a few numbers are that of “Aglipayan”. The site is located along the road of Barangay Binanuahan and this creates as a wonder to those who sees it often asking the question why a medium scale subdivision is located at the top of the mountain. It is this wonder in their mind which creates a curious mind as to what GK is all about.
    The partnership between the Local Government Unit of Lagonoy and Gawad Kalinga has been very strong. This is visible with how GK was able to develop the site even when the terrain is somewhat 25% sloped.  The challenge here is the road going to the GK site, it is not cemented nor covered with asphalt. There is also the proximity of the area from the central business district which limits their capacity to do business easily. Although this many factors have affected them for quite a while, the life of the residents here have proven to be more than a blessing not just to the surrounding Barangay but primarily to each other.
