The Anchor Land GK Village in Cavite turns over 111 new homes to beneficiaries
May 18, 2013

To further its nation building goals, high end property developer Anchor Land partnered with Gawad Kalinga in constructing homes for poor families in Brgy. Hugo Perez in Trece Martires, Cavite.

Last year, Anchor Land turned over 30 homes in the site. This year, Anchor Land and GK met up once again – this time, for the turnover of 111 new homes in a community which will soon be called the Anchor Land GK Village.

On 19 March 2014, 111 freshly painted homes were turned over to the beneficiaries. The turnover took place at the center of the Gawad Kalinga site in Brgy. Hugo Perez, Trece Martires. Anchor Land representatives were joined by Gawad Kalinga officers, and the new homeowners themselves.

The beneficiaries of these new homes come from different areas—some used to be informal settlers in Intramuros, some are the less fortunate families of Trece Martires, and several families are Yolanda survivors from Tacloban.

“Anchor Land, over the past decade, has created an identity synonymous to high living,” says Anchor Land chairman Stephen Lee. “We are now readily known in the industry as being in the business of building luxurious residential condominiums. With our partnership with Gawad Kalinga, however, we have helped build a different kind of living space. These houses offer families a different kind of luxury – the experience of having a home.”

Earlier this year, Anchor Land also turned over a check worth P280,000 to former Monarch Parksuites endorser Georgina Wilson and Gawad Kalinga. 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.
