Revisiting GK’s Enchanted Farm

By

If you’re tired of the endless political bickering, mudslinging and other destructive maneuvers that aim to set back this country many years or stop its growth dead in the tracks, take a day off and spend time at the Gawad Kalinga (GK) Enchanted Farm in Barangay Encanto in Angat, Bulacan.

An accident of birth

By

I am aboard an airplane bringing me home to Manila after two great days in Iloilo province. It seems that being busy and able to help Yolanda victims somehow mitigates the growing frustration that even I, an active member in the humanitarian work of Gawad Kalinga (GK), have been feeling these last two months.

Modest proposal

By

I thought I’d round off my articles on “Yolanda” and how it has drawn our attention to the poor by talking about an idea I’ve had for quite some time now. That idea is to launch some kind of “propoor coalition” to thrust fighting poverty to the forefront of national consciousness. What better time to do it than the dawning of a new year?

A matter of choice

By

Three weeks of frantic relief work disrupted our lives. Being part of a movement that is anchored on volunteerism and poverty challenged all of us who are involved in one way or another with Gawad Kalinga. And there is no end in sight, not when millions are displaced and some of them crippled by grief, trauma, and sheer hopelessness.
