Gawad Kalinga eyes housing project in Baguio City

SOCIALIZED housing projects by Gawad Kalinga may soon rise in Baguio City.

Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong asked members of the City Council to give him authority to enter into a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with Gawad Kalinga.

"Socialized housing projects are one of the priorities and (part of) our 15-point agenda. While Gawad Kalinga builds homes for the poor and as such, transferring them from a slum environment to a beautiful community restores their dignity and pride," Magalong said.

"Gawad Kalinga works with different partners in this critical step in their journey out of poverty. Everyone has a part to play in the building of communities and restoring hope," the mayor added.

Magalong has also proposed to use city-owned properties in Barangays Irisan and Lualhati for socialized housing projects for qualified government employees and resettlement site for qualified beneficiaries in the city.
