COMMUNITIES IN SULU

GK Maimbung
GK COMMUNITY
Patikul, Sulu
The Gawad Kalinga Village in the Municipality of Maimbung is the newest site in Sulu Province. The Village can be found in Barangay Lawm Maimbung, just near the town proper. As of July, 2010, houses are still being built but the residents-to-be have already formed the Kapitbahayan (GK’s Neighborhood Association).The houses are made of indigenous materials, built just like the traditional Tausug house. The target number of houses for the village is 120.The GK Village in Maimbung is very promising because of the assurance from the newly elected local chief – Mayor Samir Tan that he will support Gawad Kalinga. Colonel Lumawag, commander of the Marine Battalion Landing Team 2 has also acknowledged support for GK. More importantly, the Kapitbahayan have expressed great joy and excitement for their rising community.
