Nelson Mandela Day celebrated in Gawad Kalinga Napindan Village, PhilippinesWritten by Cristina
The community of Gawad Kalinga Napindan Village celebrated the 2014 Nelson Mandela International Day with the president and staff of Aspen Philippines two days after typhoon Glenda struck the country. We painted the fence inside the village and had fun activities with the children. Gawad Kalinga is a foundation in the Philippines which provides several holistic and sustainable programs including values formation and infrastructure. We thrive on the Filipino's spirit of 'bayanihan' which means leaving no one behind. The rich and the poor work together to help each other.
