A New Perspective About Social Entreprenuership

November 1, 2015

It was an inspiring session attending sharing session with Tony Meloto, who is the founder of Gawad Kalinga (GK). His organization, Gawad Kalinga (GK) is a movement that builds integrated, holistic and sustainable communities in slum areas and remote rural communities with a vision to end poverty for 5 million Filipino families by 2024. The organization focuses on health, environment and enterprise development issues.

The main key points of the sharing session as:

  1. Create values that other stakeholder can benefit from. Find ways to create an win-win situation. The example given my Tony is request land owner for donation of 20% of the land not as charity, but a way to allow Tony work on the lands by planting crops, thereby increasing the land values. This ultimately beneficial to land owner who has 80% of the land with land price increase
  2. Do not search for funding using charity as the reason, instead ask what values you can bring in to potential donors. What values the social activities other can benefit from, thereby enable other voluntarily funding.
  3. Getting the best people from the top society to help on the lowest society, bringing them up thereby increase the qualities of the society as a whole.
  4. You cannot do it alone.
  5. Radical optimism
  6. Community is a number games. We get the the largest number to show effectiveness of the social activity.
  7. Doable, visible, quantifable, sustainable, replicable.
