COMMUNITIES IN CEBU

GK Bantayan
GK COMMUNITY
Toledo City, Cebu
It was year 2003 that GK HOLD - New Jersey Village started in the Municipality of Bantayan.Through the initiative of Couples for Christ, they were able to partner with Mr. Wellington Lim Chan, owner of the largest poultry farms in the island to donate his lot at Brgy. Mojon. CFC also made the initial donation of 5 houses from their members in Bantayan. Thirty houses were eventually given from Handmaids of the Lord New Jersey USA and 4 more from Singaporean American School including other infrastructure like deep well, basketball court and Sibol school. Majority of the beneficiaries are squatters of private lots in the different barangays of Bantayan but are now comfortably relocated to their new homes in the GK village. They were grateful that their new home is now made of concrete materials compared tot heir old place which was just made of light nipa materials. Last April 2011 during the Bayani Challenge in the island all the houses including the clinic,sibol school and multipurpose were given a facelift after years of faded paint and dirty black wall due to soot from their dirty kitchen. It now boasts vibrant colors and has reinvigorated the spirit of the community members because of the hundreds of volunteer who came and help restore the beauty oftheir GK village.
