GK social entrepreneurs @HEC Paris

Gawad Kalinga (GK), which means “to give care”, was founded in 2003 by Antonio Meloto. It is a movement that builds integrated, holistic & sustainable communities in slum areas and remote rural communities with a vision to end poverty for 5 million Filipino families by 2024.

GK’s plan, called GK 777, is split into three "phases" each of 7 years:

  • 2003-2010 – 1st phase : Social justice with social impact. GK created 2300 communities all over the country alleviating poverty for 1 million families.
  • 2011-2017 – 2nd phase: Social artistry. For GK communities to be self-sufficient, GK launched in 2010 the Centre for Social Innovation (CSI) to serve as an incubator for local and international social entrepreneurs and create jobs in the Philippines.

To date, GK-CSI has incubated several successful social enterprises such as Bayani Brew and Plush & Play. It today supports younger projects such as  FreeBirds or Oh GK.

  • The GK 777 thirsd phase will be 2018-2024: Social progress by working on scale and sustainability of what have been established earlier.
