The Genius of the Poor
A Journey with Gawad Kalinga
Following a serendipitous encounter with the founder of Gawad Kalinga (GK), Thomas Graham quit his job, moved out of his apartment and set off to discover GK communities all over the Philippines.
The book is a heartfelt and often humorous account of a foreigner's life-changing journey in the Philippines. Whether in prisons, conflict areas or dangerous slums, Thomas became inspired by countless heroes that share one common dream – to build a nation in which no Filipino is ever again left behind.
