A closer look: Gawad Kalinga, a holistic approach to end poverty, is adopted in Sta. Barbara

By Deborah Castillo Beltran

There is no too rich who cannot care, and there is no too poor who cannot share.
– Antonio “Tony” Meloto
Founder, Gawad Kalinga

Gawad Kalinga (GK), officially the GK Community Development Foundation is a Philippine-based nation-building movement established in 2003 that aims to end poverty through holistic community development.
Poverty, as Gawad Kalinga sees it, is not an economic problem but a behavioral one since slum behavior breeds slum mentality. It is not lack of resources but lack of caring and sharing.

Hence, GK envisions land for the landless, homes for the homeless and food for the hungry through dignity restoration, values formation and resources-sharing (i.e., the brightest and the best share their resources with the least.)
