GK COMMUNITY
Pagadian City, Zamboanga Del Sur
Families  residing along Magsaysay St. know the danger and insecurities in life while they continue to live along a street. They are prone to vehicular accidents; however, they prefer to live in the area because of the nature of their job like tricycle drivers / farm laborers. Most of the families living in the area are those affected by the widening of the Magsaysay St. and the construction of the Integrated Bus Terminal that force them to vacate the area and transferred to the resettlement site in Brgy Culo, Mahayag.The homeowners had seen a new hope for the possibility of starting a new life in their new GK community. From a very congested unsanitary place at the old slaughterhouse,the GK Homeowners learn to live in a safe, clean and peaceful surrounding far from the attack of lawless elements, contamination of diseases and social vices.Last November 9, 2002, volunteers initiated the repair and renovation of the existing houses at the site wherein 20 of the 49 homeowners were provided with decent homes by the GK partners.
