Help end poverty this summer with one of these activities

Gawad Kalinga Bayani Challenge 2015 activities

Have you signed up for a Bayani Challenge this summer? Here’s a description of what could be in store for you when you show up at a GK site: 

Build houses from the ground up

From passing the hollow blocks and mixing cement, to laying the foundation, attaching the roof, and painting the walls with vibrant colors – you are helping build someone’s future home! The best part: you get to meet, exchange stories, and work alongside these families whose homes you are helping build. That’s more than enough reason to brave the summer sun!

This activity is most fun with friends and family in tow.

Spend time with the kids and keep up with their energy

Create a paradise of fun and learning through our PARAISONG PAMBATA. Feed their imagination through storytelling and arts, energize their bodies through fun games, song, and dance, and nurture them by sharing the values of caring and sharing.

Are you ready to be these kids’ Ates and Kuyas?

Ready your apron and hairnets because we are going to cook for hundreds… or thousands… in the Kusina ng Kalinga!

Be prepared to peel and chop KILOS of potatoes, kamote, sayote, or whatever vegetable is in the menu for the day. Or you could wash the dishes. 😉

This summer, understand why we say: Hunger ends where caring begins.

Make sure that everyone is healthy

Make sure that everyone is healthy

Is health your advocacy? Organize and conduct medical check-ups and consultations in the barangays. Or you can teach the community the basics of nutrition and personal hygiene.

Help us build healthy communities.

Plant something for the future

Get those green thumbs ready. We are going to plant mangroves and tree seedlings all over the towns and barangays, and talk about the importance of taking care of the environment as a community.

Help make the Philippines a greener and climate-resilient country, one barangay at a time.

Get kids excited for the next school year

Get kids excited for the next school year

Wanna go to school this summer? Not for classes, but for build activities! We will be doing a tour of public schools in the towns to do landscape work, repairing tables, chairs, and desks, and repainting walls. We will make the schools look fun and inviting, the kids won’t be able to wait longer for classes to start again.

Spend your summer days in schools.

Get your hands dirty in our backyard farm plots

Get your hands dirty in our backyard farm plots

It’s not as hard as planting rice, but backyard farming has its own share of difficulties. Help our communities tend to their vegetable plots. You can till the soil, or help weed it. If your lucky, you might just be in time for harvest activities.

Get to experience firsthand why, “Magtanim ay ‘di biro!”

Pass, shoot, score! Pass, kick, goal!

Get the kids into sports and play your way into their hearts. Sports activities are not just fun, they also help build character, discipline, and relationships.

Share the passion. Who knows, you could be mentoring the nation’s next super athletes!

So how about you bring your own ball and teammates too?

Build a roster of disaster-ready barangays

Keep them informed and get them ready.
