Cuso International is proud to partner with Gawad Kalinga (GK) Canada and the Gawad Kalinga Foundation in the Philippines. ‘Gawad Kalinga’ translates to ‘give care’ in English.

GK Canada is a Canadian registered charity formed to alleviate poverty by mobilizing the Filipino Canadian diaspora community. The Gawad Kalinga Foundation is a Philippine-based movement that aims to end poverty by restoring dignity of the poor. They currently work with over 2,000 communities across the Philippines and their goal is to end poverty for 5 million families through the building of communities, movements and social businesses.

Volunteers are needed to help GK with various requirements to help grow these programs.

Members of the Filipino Canadian diaspora are strongly encouraged to apply and may be prioritized in the selection process. Take this opportunity to ‘give back’ to your country of heritage!
