If each of us takes part in caring and sharing, the overwhelming challenge of poverty can be addressed. Alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much.

"Give love and I pay for your flight!" With 1 week left and 16 kids short of our target, GK volunteer Brian Mo poses this challenge to all givers for a chance to visit and experience our Kusina ng Kalinga in action:

    Hunger is a condition that goes beyond empty stomachs. Among our young, it threatens their dreams, futures, and takes away their confidence to have a fair chance at a better life. Recent statistics show that 15 Million Filipino children are consistently hungry, and that our country ranks 9th in the world with the most number of stunted children. Though the problem is massive, we at Gawad Kalinga believe that ending hunger is possible.

    Kusina ng Kalinga is GK’s campaign to end child hunger by caring together. Our kitchens - powered by the bayanihan work of parents, volunteers, teachers, school and community administrators, LGUs, private individuals, organizations, and corporate partners, are hubs for preparing a whole year round of daily nutritious lunch meals to (K to 6) public schoolchildren. This program is a comprehensive and scalable approach to empowering our young and improving their quality of life as it indirectly impacts their performance in school, their home and community environment.

    Our kitchens are currently operating in Alang-Alang, Leyte (3,800 kids), San Isidro, Leyte (5,125 kids), Quezon City, Metro Manila (2,000 kids), and Tacurong, Sultan Kudarat (2,000 kids). Whatever we raise from this campaign will be used to sustain these kitchens, open new ones, and reach 50,000 kids by June 2015.
