  1. i was touched by the heroic act you and your companies are doing to help uplift the living condition of the poorest of the poor of our country. i never thought that a business empire such as the gokongweis, could still looked back for those who were left behind in the race towards a better life. I was even more touched by the speech the gokongwei patriarch delivered during the 2007 ad congress. the speech was truly a challenge to all filipinos.

  2. Hi,

    I am a long time volunteer of GK here in Australia. I’m so inspired by the participation of corporate and non corporate organisations in building a new hope for the Philippines. Together we can end the Poverty of hope and belief, which is one of the things that holds the Philippines back from what it could be.

    Again, we are showing the world what can be done when good people come together for the good of the nation and its people.

    By accident, I ran into a man I think to be Mr. Frederick Go. on a bus during his business trip in Sydney Australia. He mentioned the support of Robinsons and its family of companies has for Gawad Kalinga.

    I’m glad to see that support continue.

    Thank you and God bless you all.

  3. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
    The Gokongwei empire is commendable for leading the way for others to follow in providing hope & opportunities to the people.
    Mr. Gokongwei & his employees will be blessed for their humanitarian effort.
    God Bless!
