Gawad Kalinga Global Social Business Summit
January 14 – 17, 2016 Enchanted Farm, Angat Bulacan
It was a dream for me to visit the Enchanted Farm of Gawak Kalinga and check out what they have there. GOD gave me more, I was able to attend the Global Social Business Summit this year and met lots of very inspiring Social Entrepreneurs and investors.
God so gave me more, Tito Tony conducted a surprise love forum on the 2rd night encouraging us to find a life time spouse with the same passion. Lesson Learned: Be Ready for Love, Be Loved, and Stay Loving and Lovable.
Since I am into Ecotourism, conservation of culture, community and creation. I got inspired to come up with supplementary livelihood to all GK site that are near tourism destinations, to mobilize a homestay accommodation. The tourist staying in the home can learn about the values of Gawad Kalinga, and values of conservation of culture, community and creation. Was able to meet different Provincial GK Coordinators who are also very much interested with the Homestay Social Tourism Program.
Was able to experience a close encounter with former President Noynoy Aquino.
This event also inspired me to volunteer at Kusina Kalinga in Sultan Kudarat, Mindanao. Another blog.
I will attend again the Gawad Kalinga Global Social Business Summit next year 2017 January 20 to 22 and hopefully can join the Kusina Kalinga at Sulu Island in Mindanao also
