OUR FOUNDER & TRUSTEES


OUR FOUNDER

"It's been an awesome adventure since I plunged into the slums of Bagong Silang in 1995 to discover for myself the sad reality that my country is poor because we keep leaving the poor behind.


Since then solidarity with the poor has been the joy of my life and I am deeply grateful to my wife

and children for accepting my bigger definition

of family that includes the poor,

who oftentimes deserve the bigger share of my time because they have less in life.”



— GK Father & Founder Tony Meloto







OUR TRUSTEES

The GK Board consists of a mix of external trustees and key people within the GK organization to be able to bring the most extensive range of expertise in key areas of GK’s operation. We weren’t just searching for individuals of integrity and influence. More importantly, we wanted GK friends that we had built a relationship with, and had extensive experience and appreciation of our on-ground work to be able to make sound policies that support and facilitate the work of our caretakers.
