Posted by Michille on December 29th, 2006

AS 2006 comes to a close, around 500 brightly-painted crayola-colored homes now stand in some eight Gawad Kalinga (GK) villages in the province, according to the latest data posted on the organization’s website.

Local government units hosting GK communities here are Dumaguete City with four villages and one village each in Bayawan City, Bais City, Tanjay City, Mabinay and Sta. Catalina.

According to Oliver Lemence, Couples for Christ (CFC) designated media liaison officer, said the villages in the province are the result of local multi-sectoral partnership among CFC, LGUs, government agencies, non-government organizations and the community.
