GK Bayani Challenge 2011
It was quite a year now after I knew stuffs about Gawad Kalinga. I had my first GK activity, together with CIT students last January 31, 2010 at the Talisay GK Site. We build 10 houses for our unfortunate fellows in the City. It was really amazing that after just a day, we were able to build the houses. More on that, it was the BAYANIHAN or WORKING TOGETHER that made me realize that if we will just hold together and aim something BIG for the community, then little by little we can build a country of "no shanties."
My second encounter is when Sir Antonio Meloto, the GK Founder himself visited our school last December 10, 2010. We had sit-down talk and there he further gave me an idea of a true Filipino, a breed that presently practices SLAVERY in his own COUNTRY and thus must be withdrawn and must learn to love the community and the country before one's self.
This 2011, I'm looking forward for the GK Bayani Challenge 2011, a 5-day test of endurance, courage and love for the country to be held at Bantayan Island from April 4-9, 2011. From the Event Schedule and Special Events, as early as now I want to register but I think it would be better if I'll form a team of 15 and not just by own.
