Gawad Kalinga - GK Expo 2008

Many countries the world over are facing varying degrees of economic difficulties. Even supposedly invincible nations like the US and those in Europe are being forced to scrimp and save. The rich are feeling the pinch... But let's stop to imagine the poor are faring. We simply can't.

Amidst the bleak picture being painted, there is still the bright hope being offered by Gawad Kalinga. Gawad Kalinga or GK is a multisectoral, integrated community development program which aims to uplift the lives of the poorest of the poor Filipino. Its approach to combating poverty is holistic by way of fundamental programs that center on shelter, health, education, environment, livelihood, values formation, and child and youth development. Its trademark array of colorful communities now number around 2,000 with more that 25,000 homes built and counting.

Join Gawad Kalinga (Give Care) as this revolutionary movement celebrates the 5th year of its formal launch with the GAWAD KALINGA EXPO on Saturday, October 11, 2008 at the Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. This year's theme is WALANG IWANAN! (Nobody Gets Left Behind!), a battlecry that aim to reaffirm and solidify further our support of volunteers and partners to our impoverished fellow Filipinos. Visit the booths, participate in the discussions, enjoy the exhibits, and see how you can join this massive push to make the Filipino nation rise again, higher.

Gawad Kalinga Expo 2008 promises to be another experience that indeed the Filipino is worth living for.

My memories of past GK Expos are here, here, and here.

I attended the EXPO last year and it's been a great experience. I've seen lot's of GK members all over the country as we marched the GLOBAL CITY in TAGUIG. By the way, GK Global Summit will be held at BOSTON, MA this coming June 12. I wish I can be there too. :)
