‘Bayanihan’ showcase

/ 12:56 AM May 07, 2012

Conrado de Quiros’ April 5 column (“Resurrection”) reminds Filipinos that we can resurrect our old value of “bayanihan” or cooperation. Gawad Kalinga (GK) is showing the world how we do it. GK deserves to receive the Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship.

GK started this undertaking  with the Couples for Christ, a Catholic charismatic group, with the noble intention of preaching the Gospel, not just with words but also through concrete actions; by attending not only to a person’s spiritual needs but also to his material needs.

GK houses in different parts of the Philippines are providing not only shelter to hundreds of families, they have also rekindled hopes and enabled beneficiaries to enjoy a better, decent existence, creating a caring community environment, promoting development, patriotism and love for our Creator.
