Thank you to all partners, donors, and volunteers for being with us all this time. This would not have been possible without your support. Happy Monthsary to us, mga bayani!

Walang Iwanan: Team GK Cebu visits several sites in Gairan Bogo. 


"We arrived at noon on Sunday at a basketball court and you could tell that, despite the no-longer-familiar sites of a place so near and dear to our hearts, the spirit of the people remained as high as ever. Children were running around with the widest smiles on their faces as they yelled to one another, "Oy, gi picture-an ka ni ate o! smile kuno diha!" And as we left aboard a large truck, they waved goodbye and thanked us, and then I remembered the reasons why we do the things we do at Gawad Kalinga."
