FEED A CHILD, GIVE THEM HOPE: BE A #HUNGERWARRIOR

A majority of the millions of Filipinos suffering from hunger during this pandemic are 12 years old and below. 

$60 is all it takes to feed them nutritious food for 120 days.

A FUTURE FULL OF HOPE

Who we are

GK1 World Foundation, collectively known as Gawad Kalinga USA is the lead partner organization of the Gawad Kalinga Global Community and its mission partners in creating a sustainable template to end poverty.

Our vision 

Gawad Kalinga USA aims to uplift the Philippines as a nation; to build a country  full of hope. We envision a nation made up of sharing and caring communities dedicated to eradicating poverty and restoring human dignity.

Our mission
End poverty for 5 million Filipino families by 2024.

​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 and feed the poor, and provide our communities with educational and economic opportunities to rise up from poverty.

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.

HOW WE END POVERTY: 

OUR PLATFORMS

Stories inspired by the people who rediscover hope in the midst of adversity. Having the chance to connect with our brothers and sisters on the ground allows us to share their perspective on poverty. Read on for stories of the people who need help the most.
