GMA Kapuso Foundation

GMA Kapuso Foundation is one of the most accomplished, trusted, and credible non-government organizations in the Philippines; the leader in serving and uplifting the lives of the underprivileged members of our society through public service and the responsible use of media.

Studies in public schools show that due to the lack of sound health, sanitation and nutrition programs, severe dental decay and intestinal worms can cause children to miss school or simply drop out. To address this problem, the Department of Education (DepEd) has embarked on its Essential Health Care Program (EHCP).  Recognizing its importance in ensuring that children stay in school, GMA Kapuso Foundation (GMAKF) partnered with UNICEF in 2008 to launch the Linis Lusog Kids (LLK) Project to support the EHCP program of DepEd. 

Partnership milestones

  • Construction and repair of toilets, water supply and hand-washing facilities in 10 schools
  • Over 6,000 school children have been provided with personal hygiene kits
  • The Linis Lusog Kids project also created a series of videos on handwashing, toothbrushing and alternatives to soap and toothpaste. The video is used for advocacy training on proper health and hygiene for students, teachers and parents.
