​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.
