Community Outreach Program: Gawad Kalinga – Hope Alberto Balcells Village


Before Kalipay Negrense Foundation was established in 2007, its President and Founder, Ms. Anna Balcells was already involved in a community outreach project, Gawad Kalinga at Barangay Kabatangan in Talisay City, Negros Occidental.  Her family donated a number of houses to GK beneficiaries.  Her commitment to help the poorest of the poor did not diminish.

Since 2007 up to present, Kalipay through the leading of Ms. Balcells and the monetary help given by generous donors, continues to support and implement projects in Gawad Kalinga.  In total, 29 houses have been built including 4 classrooms for Grades 1 to 4, a community clinic equipped with dental and medical facilities, and an activity center for livelihood projects.  Various activities in the community have been undertaken through Kalipay.

Through the years, Kalipay reaches out not only to the disadvantaged children loitering in the street, but also to families who are in need.  Community outreach projects and activities emphasizing the importance of family values, provide economic opportunities and offer education to the children and the community members.
