COMMUNITIES IN SURIGAO DEL SUR

GK Carrascal
GK COMMUNITY
Tandag, Surigao del Sur
A local joke had circled around GK Bacolod for years, a joke among the volunteers, that it is the richest GK site. Why? Because it sits on a pot of gold. Because of its red soil, a characteristic of an iron-rich soil, it is believed that it is part of the red iron mountain of the province. And the province is a well-known iron mountain. The many mining industry that sprouted everywhere is a manifestation of the richness of minerals of the soil. The site is on a hilltop that overlooks the national road and the mountain ranges beyond. It is very accessible by any means of transportation. The beneficiaries came from the coastal barangays of the municipality. Currently, it has 15 constructed houses with 14 homeowners and 1 house used as a KB office. One of its strong local partner is the Surigao del Sur State University Cantilan Campus. They are now the caretaker team of GK Carrascal.
