POVERTY
OUR SCALE


IN THE PHILIPPINES

Poverty in the Philippines and throughout the world is massive in scope and depth, and requires nothing less than a heroic response in people to truly make a difference. This is why Gawad Kalinga continues to rally all sectors of society to help achieve its vision to end poverty for 5 million families by year 2024.


Currently, Gawad Kalinga is present in almost every province in the country, spread in over 2,000 communities and affecting 60,000 families. There are 16 Area Coordination Teams that are on ground, going where help is needed the most. In our promise to leave no one behind, GK does not hesitate to enter some of the most troubled and war-torn areas. GK communities are known to be zones of peace, and we have successfully transformed slums into peaceful and productive communities.

"GK's core activities relate to long-term improvement in the housing and community building for and by very poor Filipinos who have historically lived in slums. They are an indigenous organization of Filipinos helping Filipinos. We like this perspective becuase we believe immediate emergency assistance is best when built on an established local network and when matched with a capacity to help rebuild long term."
