Bikes for the Philippines, Inc. (BfP) is a Massachusetts-based 501c3 nonprofit organization
Completing a high school education gives an individual a better chance of rising out of poverty and a sense of pride and accomplishment in their own achievements. In an effort to ease the hardship of simply getting to school, Bikes for the Philippines, in partnership with Bikes for the World in Arlington, Virginia was born. Bicycle collections are held in the United States and we provide these recycled bicycles to Filipinos who could benefit from the healthy and reliable form of transportation. The initial focus had been on Education. Along with the bicycle comes a helmet as well as mandatory bike safety and maintenance classes. As a child grows, they are fitted with a more appropriately sized bicycle to match their growth. While initially on loan to the student, bike ownership is awarded upon graduation.Visit Website
“Gawad Kalinga,” translated in English means to “give care.”
Poverty in the Philippines and throughout the world is massive in scope and depth, and requires nothing less than a heroic response in people to truly make a difference. This is why Gawad Kalinga continues to rally all sectors of society to help achieve its vision to end poverty for 5 million families by year 2024.
Currently, Gawad Kalinga is present in almost every province in the country, spread in over 2,000 communities and affecting 60,000 families. There are 16 Area Coordination Teams that are on ground, going where help is needed the most. In our promise to leave no one behind, GK does not hesitate to enter some of the most troubled and war-torn areas. GK communities are known to be zones of peace, and we have successfully transformed slums into peaceful and productive communities.Visit Website
