We are Grupo Kalinangan
GKI envisions a positive change in the management and preservation of cultural heritage of the Philippines.
To educate and empower local governments, communities and institutions manage their cultural heritage resources more effectively through innovative IT-enabled solutions, platforms, programs and services.
Our core values are centered on the concept of heritage and community: SALAMAT, KAPAMANA
It began with a map and a mission. And a call for help.
Over nine years since the volunteers of Grupo Kalinangan have formed itself as a team, we have grown into a formidable organization that can readily respond to the needs for our cultural heritage.
