background information from

Rodriguez said Gawad Kalinga was building houses with two rooms, a kitchen, a toilet and bath and a living room on a 30- to 40-square meter-lot for only P70,000.

If the government tapped private contractors, the same house would cost P210,000, he said.

At 1.2 million houses, the savings would come to P168 billion, Rodriguez told the Manila Standard

Rodriguez appealed to the opponents of the bill, which adopts the model favored by the non-government organization Gawad Kalinga, saying the approach could save the government P168 billion and build 1.2 million houses for the poor nationwide.
