Federal Land, Inc., one of the country’s leading real estate developers, together with Gawad Kalinga Community Development Foundation, Inc. (GK) recently turned over 60 more new homes to families in Las Piñas City, Calbayog City, and Del Carmen, Siargao in the first quarter of the year.
This brings to 340 the total number of homes that Federal Land, Inc. has completed since it partnered with GK in 2013.
The company previously turned over 280 homes in 11 villages in Cavite, Iloilo, Capiz, Maguindanao, Tarlac, Laguna, and Zambales.
Six more villages will be turned over in Bukidnon, Rizal, Iloilo, Davao, Northern Samar, and Metro Manila this year.
“Federal Land, Inc. is a testament to GT Capital Holdings founder Dr. George S.K. Ty’s vision to promote better lives for Filipinos by providing them with better homes,” said Federal Land, Inc. vice president for Marketing Catherine Advincula. “In line with this vision, our partnership with GK has enabled Federal Land, Inc. to respond to this growing need of Filipinos, especially the underprivileged.”
In Calbayog City, where 20 homes were turned over at the Dinagan GK site in February, grateful beneficiaries joined Federal Land, Inc. and GK officers.
“I am very thankful for this chance to own a house,” shared Marilou Abarte, one of the new homeowners. “As a single mother of four, I am now assured of a good home for years to come where I can live with my children in comfort and safety.”
Michaela Monforte, another beneficiary, expressed her happiness for this opportunity, “It’s truly a dream come true to have a house I can call my own.”
“What we give to these new homeowners are not just homes,” shared GK provincial head for Samar Edward Baltazar. “We also provide these families consistent presence, friendship, and strong values formation and mentoring programs for sustainable transformation.”
Federal Land, Inc. president Pascual M. Garcia III said the company would continue to partner with Gawad Kalinga to support the Board of Investment’s Investments Priority Plan.
“We invest in our country as we have made a commitment to make it a beautiful place – a home not just for ourselves but for our countrymen,” he shared.
