While it was not originally conceived to solve the urban housing problem, Gawad Kalinga (GK) is now known largely because of its success in mobilizing donors, volunteers, and the intended beneficiaries themselves in building beautiful and colorful houses in thousands of communities all over the country. As of June 2009, it has built a total of 33,439 houses in 1,400 villages in the Philippines. Almost 9,000 houses of these houses were built in Metro Manila alone (Gawad Kalinga, 2009).
