Mission & Vision

Gawad Kalinga meaning ‘to give care’ is based on the values of giving care to people from all backgrounds, beliefs and places through the relationships that are built through volunteers working with impoverished beneficiary communities.

Volunteering for Gawad Kalinga changed my life. Experiencing the strength of the people we helped, I received much more than I gave.
— Paul, Bayani Challenge (2013)
