Community Building

Our Community Building Program empowers GK communities to be self-reliant and sustainable by building up its people towards unity and self-governance then ultimately service for others.


Through the years, we have witnessed the transformation of GK residents to organized communities mentored by a team of committed community caretakers driven by the values of "padugo" (bleeding for the cause) and "bayanihan" (being heroes to one another). Through regular community values formation and leadership sessions, GK residents (the Kapitbahayan) are also empowered to become program implementers in their own communities and partners in growing the movement towards nation building.


Each GK village aspires to become a model community that is:


A Faith Community where residents are free to practice their religious beliefs in an atmosphere of mutual respect and reverence


A Peace Zone where neighbors live in harmony and where conflicts are justly settled based on the higher principles of neighborly love and the common good


A Tourist Spot where the sense of beauty and order is regarded as an indispensable part of dignified human dwelling


A Productivity Center where human and natural resources are fully utilized to sustain the growth and development of the community


An Environmentally Healthy Community where residents practice the principles of proper utilization and preservation of the environment


An Empowered Community where individuals participate actively in governing the daily life and activities of their village


A Secured Community where residents are prepared to respond accordingly in the event of calamities in order to preserve lives and property
