Our Partners: Gawad Kalinga Payatas Trese

GK Payatas Trese Printers

Amidst the hills of Payatas rises an empowered community built on Bayanihan and the values of Social Entrepreneurship.

Throughout the years, Gawad Kalinga has been guiding the families of Payatas 13 to achieve their dreams. From building homes to hosting complimentary programs in education, village organization, health care, environment and tourism, each program was designed to strengthen the foundation of their families and their relationship with the community.

As each visitor to GK Payatas 13 would be amazed with the warmth and potential of the people, it was a natural progression that a community based enterprise would complete such transformation.

GK Payatas 13 Printers was established last August 2008, taking into consideration the skills of the men and women of Payatas. Along with active investors from Ateneo de Manila University, the social enterprise took flight engaging in various manufacturing contracts for different organizations and events.

From Basic Silkscreen Printing to Eco-Canvass Bags and Lanterns, the Kapitbahayan and the youth of GK Payatas 13 mobilize to create products that capture the admiration of many and fulfil their aspirations for their community.

With this, GK Payatas 13 Printers shares with the values of Suelas, developing the skills of marginalized communities in the hopes of championing what is truly Filipino.
