Gawad Kalinga Community Development Foundation, Inc. (GK) was formally established in 2003 in the Philippines, but the work began as early as 1994 in Bagong Silang, Caloocan City, the biggest squatters relocation site in Metro Manila. Since then it has expanded its work to over 2,000 organized communities and has been adopted in other developing nations like Cambodia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. It is also in the forefront of peace-building work in conflict areas in Mindanao and reconstruction work in post-disaster communities.
Project Happy Feet, through Slipper Race Cebu 2014- Crimson Resort Edition has fundraised Php280,000 to fund school packs that will be given out to 2,100 public school students studying in Cebu.
