Gawad Kalinga

6 Aug 2010

In the Philippines, the foundation continued disbursing educational awards to the youths from the slums, identified by Gawad Kalinga as deserving of financial support for their college education. The foundation believes that education will help poor children end the vicious cycle of poverty and gain a better standard of living. In line with the belief that our contributions should generate a social return, we hope that the beneficiaries develop the desire to give back to society through Gawad Kalinga. Under their “Child and Youth Development” programme, Gawad Kalinga aims to hone the skills and talents of their young beneficiaries by inculcating value-based education that bring out their full potential.
