Gawad Kalinga

July 26, 2011

The Office of Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, ensuring that its special projects are executed under the template of private-public sector partnerships, has been loyal to the cause of the housing project Gawad Kalinga (GK).

To date, Sen. Kiko Pangilinan is the leading donor to GK among government entities, with more than P40 million of Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) going to this worthy cause.

Sen. Kiko believes in GK as it not only builds physical shelter structures for the poor, but enjoins beneficiaries to personally work on building their houses so that there is a sense of ownership and dignity in every home it creates.

Gawad Kalinga is a community-building initiative of the Couples for Christ, Gawad Kalinga, or “to give care,” aims to build 700,000 houses in 70 provinces in 7 years.
