Anchor Land partners with Georgina Wilson and Gawad Kalinga
To further its nation building goals, high end property developer Anchor Land turned over a check worth P280,000 to former Monarch Parksuites endorser Georgina Wilson and Gawad Kalinga Executive Director Luis Oquiñena. The funds will be used to build two houses in the GK Georgetown Village in Dasmarinas, Cavite. Georgetown is a partnership between GK and Ms. Wilson.
Anchor Land Holdings, Inc. has been a partner of Gawad Kalinga since 2012 and already built 30 homes with a hundred more under construction.
It was in July 2012 when Anchor Land signed its first agreement with Gawad Kalinga. This first collaboration built thirty new homes in the baranggay. On 07 June 2013, one year after Anchor Land’s executives signed the contract, the freshly painted homes was turned over to the thirty beneficiaries.
On 20 May 2013, Anchor Land once again signed a deal with Gawad Kalinga to formalize Anchor Land’s second pledge. This time, the agreement is for the building of one hundred new homes that will benefit one hundred poor families. These families come from different areas—some used to be informal settlers in Intramuros while a majority is still composed of the less fortunate families of Trece Martires.
“Anchor Land believes that giving back to the community should be of paramount importance for every company,” says Anchor Land President Elizabeth Ventura. “With our partnership with Gawad Kalinga and Georgina Wilson, we will add new homes to the ones we have already built with GK.”
