Kamanggagawa Foundation: Redefining the Filipino Notion of Public ServiceOctober 20th, 2009
In as little a time span of five years, the Kamanggagawa Foundation Inc. (KFI) has completely redefined public service in the Philippines. Gone are the days when public service equated to mere photo ops of public officials having roads constructed and having waiting sheds named after them. Today Filipinos are seeing what real service to the country is like through the workings of Kamanggagawa Foundation Inc.
Kamanggagawa (Co-worker) Foundation Inc. is home to an impressive roster of public service deeds and is proud to play part in the revolutionizing of Philippine public service. Free medical assistance and legal aid, orphanages and homes for the aged, and even job-seeking opportunities – these are the trademark services that KFI is known for. Through the support of concerned people and groups, KFI’s rendering of service to the less-fortunate is made possible.
Being a leader in revolutionary humanitarian services, KFI has ventured on the very first free transient home in the Philippines, located in PHILAM, Quezon City. Opening its doors to the homeless and the unfortunate, the Kamanggagawa Foundation Transient House doesn’t stop at providing shelter – those who would stay in for the night will be given a healthy dinner, medical assistance, clothes and their own comfortable beds for the night. Before they leave, they will be given a hearty breakfast and even a Bible for them to read and be enlightened.
Today, one of the most groundbreaking projects in Philippine history is about to be made into reality – the first ever free college in Manila. Currently under-construction, the La Verdad Christian School will offer nursing and mass communication degrees to deserving students. From basic tuition fee exemption to free books, uniforms, and even meals, the Kamanggagawa Foundation Inc. will help make young dreams come true.
With the help of God Almighty and the support of selfless individuals and organizations, the Kamanggagawa Foundation Inc. will continue to revolutionize public service for the betterment of humanity.
