Social Business and Productivity

Empowering development through livelihood

Gawad Kalinga works to develop the country's next entrepreneurs through the SEED (School for Experiential and Entrepreneurial Development) program. GK also collects data from its network of communities to inform community-specific projects that donors can fund.

Enabling the poor with the right tools, training, and guidance will transform the majority of our capital into productive, self-sufficient members of our society.
GK is focusing on three of the most marginalized segments of our society: the farmers, fisherfolk, and blue-collar workers.

These worker segments have varying needs but GK focuses on what it will take for them to be profitable and independent. It may come in the form of start-up capital to buy raw materials and equipment, or in
the form of additional skills training and certification, or connecting them to the right market.

Your contribution will support efforts to empower these developing communities to own their path out of poverty.
