OUR MODEL

BUILDING COMMUNITIES

BUILDING THE MOVEMENT

BUILDING SOCIAL BUSINESSES

Poverty breeds a slum mentality, forcing the poor to a survival mode where it's every man for himself. At the heart of GK's community transformation is restoring dignity, and giving back the poor's capacity to dream and work towards the fulfillment of their dreams. What begins as a journey of hope becomes a quest for freedom from poverty in all its forms--materially, and in mind and spirit. 

Presence & Values Formation

More than programs or funding, caretakers provide consistent presence, offering a hand in friendship and with a strong values formation and mentoring program for sustainable transformation. 

Create an Enabling Environment

GK provides a nurturing environment to raise leaders at the grassroots and empowers communities to connect to mainstream services and opportunities.  


GK is organizing a community of 1,000 families relocated from the Iloilo Riverbanks. The local government will adopt the GK way: the cost of land, land development, and houses will not be charged to the beneficiaries but instead be under a usufruct for 99 years. To complete their socialized housing requirement with the Board of Investments (BOI), top developers Cityland Inc. and Anchor Land Holdings Inc. relocate informal settlers to a safer community in Trece Martires (Cavite) even before disasters strike. From a chaotic slum environment that called for daily police intervention, Esperanza in Sultan Kudarat is now a safe haven where residents no longer consider themselves poor, and children are free to dream of a brighter future.
