The Nation Building Expo 2011


The Nation Building Expo 2011

Mabuhay GK Builder!

A single act of caring when shared can inspire and unleash many more to create greater impact for those who need it most.

When we at Gawad Kalinga started our work 8 years ago, it was clear to us that no single organization could address the massive problem of poverty in our country. Our journey has brought us partners and volunteers from all sectors and allowed us to witness how their heroism have powerfully transformed communities and inspired an entire people. Other organizations have equally achieved inroads in reaching this same vision.

On the occasion of our 8th anniversary, Gawad Kalinga wishes to honor and celebrate the great spirit of volunteerism and patriotism that is moving our nation into an exciting time of change. From October 1 – 2, we will be staging The Nation Building Expo 2011 that aims to bring together a convergence of many champions for our country. We wish to invite institutions and mobilize thousands of individuals who will commit to involve themselves in caring for the less privileged and marginalized sectors. This event will likewise be a tribute to the many volunteers and partners who have gone beyond their limitations to make a concrete and sustainable difference in the life of our nation.

It is our privilege to invite you to join us. We have lined up a number of activities on both days for your participation.
1. The GK Nation Building Expo on October 1, Saturday from 5am to 7:30 pm for main Expo activities and 7:30 – 9:30 pm for the Expo Concert at the University of Sto. Tomas
2. Barrio Fiesta at The GK Enchanted Farm on October 2, Sunday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm at Brgy. Engkanto in Angat, Bulacan

Our demonstration of solidarity will send a powerful message of hope that will build resiliency in the hearts of the many poor whose lives we seek to touch.

For God and country,

Jose Luis Oquiñena
Executive Director
Gawad Kalinga
