Sustained Health and Well-Being

Make healthier behavior choices easier and more accessible by providing advice and solutions to drive financial security.

In partnership with Gawad Kalinga, we have launched the following initiatives:


Through Community Food Farms, 300 families will be able to grow their own nutritious food, securing their family’s well-being, regardless of their circumstances and family income.

To date, 30 communities across the country are growing nutritious food in their own backyards. They are spread across these locations:

  1. NCR  - Mandaluyong; Taguig
  2. Luzon – Bataan, Bulacan, Cavite
  3. Visayas – Bohol, Capiz, Cebu, Eastern Samar, Leyte
  4. Mindanao – Basilan, Butuan, Davao del Sur, Lanao del Sur, North Cotabato, Surigao del Norte, Zamboanga Sibugay

Through the Peso Smart Learning Centers, children residing in the five (5) select Gawad Kalinga villages can attend their virtual classes in a safe and stable environment, with free WiFi access.

The Peso Smart Learning Centers are located in the following areas:

  1. Mandaluyong City - GK Sipag Head Office
  2. Taguig City - GK Pinagsama Village
  3. Butuan City - GK Barangay Walang Iwanan Community
  4. Capiz - GK Dinginan Village

What we’re building is a culture. This is just the start but it can be the starting point of story, partnership and possibilities.
