THE STORY:

Supertyphoon Haiyan cut through the Philippines like a scythe, bringing unprecedented damage to affected areas, taking so many lives and leaving thousands of families to pick up the pieces and fight for survival. In times of disaster, the poor are the most vulnerable. Gawad Kalinga is now focusing its efforts in bringing relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction to affected areas. What we raise from this campaign will be used to give hope to disaster victims and help them rebuild their lives. Help us leave no one behind.

Gawad Kalinga (meaning to "give care”) is a global movement that started in the Philippines, and aims to end poverty by first restoring the dignity of the poor. With dignity restoration as our core intervention, we have seen dispossessed and vulnerable groups now empowered and loss of lives prevented as we move families from danger zones to safe havens. We have successfully transformed over 2,000 slums into peaceful and productive communities, but the work is far from over.

The problem of poverty is so massive, and our response cannot be small. On April 2014, we are mobilizing 1M volunteers to build in 300 sites, and we hope you can participate. There are thousands more Filipino families who continue to live in poverty, but IF 10,000 INDIVIDUALS JUST GAVE $35 EACH, 100 FAMILIES AFFECTED BY THE TYPHOON WILL HAVE NEW HOMES AND THE CHANCE AT A NEW BEGINNING.

Your $35 can help build safe and productive communities, but more importantly, it can inspire caring and generosity among others as well. It will send the message that poverty cuts through cultures, continents and classes, and that no matter where we live in this world, our little acts of generosity can impact the lives of others.

 

Here’s how:

  • THE MULTIPLIER EFFECT: Each $35 contribution triggers a counterpart value in the time, talent and treasure given by Gawad Kalinga’s multisectoral network of partner individuals and organizations. Your $35 is matched with land & services from the government, time & expertise from volunteers, funds from the private sector, and a counterpart (“sweat equity”) from the poor families who will work equally hard in rebuilding their future. This is the spirit of “bayanihan” (collaboration and solidarity) that has fueled the work of Gawad Kalinga through the years.

 

  • THE BIGGEST GATHERING OF HEROES IN THE PHILIPPINES: On April 2014, a million volunteers will gather in 300 sites all over the Philippines (including areas affected by the recent disaster) for the biggest volunteer event in the country: BAYANI CHALLENGE 2014. With the help of the public and private sectors, these bayanis ("heroes") will be building new communities for poor families. (Read about last year's Bayani Challenge here.)

 

  • THE TRANSFORMATION OF COMMUNITIES: Poverty is not so much about the scarcity of resources as it is about the loss of human dignity. Living in a slum environment keeps people unproductive and desperate, allowing prejudice to breed as others tend to look down upon the poor with pity, shame or fear. Your $35 can help Gawad Kalinga transform slums into communities that are self-reliant and sustainable, and ultimately, empower them to be our partners in nation-building.

 

Let us show these families that we care about them and that we are committed to leave no one behind. Together, we can end poverty.
