dc.description.abstract While it was not originally conceived to solve the urban housing problem, Gawad Kalinga (GK) is now known for its success in mobilizing donors, volunteers, and the intended beneficiaries themselves in building beautiful and colorful houses in thousands of communities all over the country. GK has initiated self-sustaining programs that have improved the lives of more than 200,000 families so far, through an integrated approach to community development, one that involves educational, health, livelihood and environmental programs. Successful policy options include recognizing beneficiaries of housing programs not as individuals but as groups of individuals belonging to organized community associations. en
