MULTI-FACETED SOLUTIONS TO A MULTI-FACETED PROBLEM

PROJECT HIGHLIGHT: SEED PROGRAM

In 2014, Gawad Kalinga established the School for Experiential and Entrepreneurial Development (SEED) as an education-based response to poverty eradication in the Philippines, a country where only 40% of high school students go for further education. 

Because face-to-face teaching is limited due to the pandemic, the SEED 3-month program was born. SEED equips students from low-income families with the skills to be agri-entrepreneurs thru a combination of campus-based and community-based learning.

 

This SEED program offers full scholarship with certificate in Organic Agriculture Productions and training in basic communication, project management, and leadership.
 

The SEED graduates hope to raise a generation of agri-entrepreneurs who will end poverty for themselves, their families, their communities, and their country.

Help us support as many agri-entrepreneurs as we can ($1,200 per student for the entire program). Click below to support the SEED program.

​Our Impact

Gawad Kalinga USA has significantly contributed to building 3,000 cohesive communities across the Philippines.  Over 5,000 local leaders work in solidarity with poor communities, volunteers, local government units and private institutions.

These communities allow us to listen to their most pressing concerns and inform us how to best respond to their needs.

SUPPORT OUR MISSION TO END POVERTY 

POVERTY IS A MULTI-FACETED PROBLEM REQUIRING A MULTI-FACETED SOLUTION.

At the core of the solution is a change of one's heart and mind, coupled with a strong desire to work together to change the status quo in a sustainable manner. 
Help us to shelter, feed the poor, and provide our communities with educational and economic opportunities to rise up from poverty.

HOW WE END POVERTY: 
OUR PLATFORMS

We allow the poor to inform our biggest decisions and actions. The solution to poverty may begin with a home, but it does not end there. Our platforms allow us to partner with other organizations, agencies and individuals so that we can be where the poor need us the most.
