Our Mission: To create sustainable programs by the youth that faithfully respond to the developmental needs of the youth | Our Vision: A community working together to build role models for our country by providing opportunities to serve
2KK Tulong sa Kapwa Kapatid is a volunteer organization that aims to empower the youth through creating opportunities for Holistic Development. 2KK was founded on the spirit of helping one another through kindness and love. To be part of the organization is "to help our fellow brothers and sisters.”
After a landslide in Payatas, the largest dumpsite in Metro Manila, hit the community living in the area in 2003, a group of teenagers set out to see how they could help. Gathering the young children in the community, the group would carry out activities such as games, singing and dancing, as well as tutoring. Over the years, the volunteers and community members formed a bond, and since then, charitable activities have answered community needs, their highest priority being education.
Kapatid is the educational arm of 2KK. It focuses on organizing activities for over 120 children (40 per community) in our partner communities in Payatas, Sampaloc, and Smokey Mountain. The Kapatid sessions are held weekly and primarily focus on teaching values formation through our 6 Kap Loves.
YAPAK (Yaman ang Pag-aralin ang Kabataan) is the scholarship arm of 2KK and focuses on empowering the youth in our partner communities. We call our scholars YAPAK Leaders to emphasize their role of being leaders in their own communities. Through the generosity of fellow Filipinos, the program aims to help the scholars receive the education they deserve in order to create a brighter future for themselves, their families, and ultimately, the nation. Moreover, the program provides numerous opportunities and mentoring to our YAPAK Leaders for their holistic development.
Living by Saint Mother Teresa's words, 2KK formed a strong relationship with the Payatas community, lasting for over 20 years. Since then, our reach expanded to new communities in Sampaloc and Smokey Mountain.
"DO SMALL THINGS WITH GREAT LOVE"
- Saint Mother Teresa
1. Mahalin ang Kapwa (Love Others)
2. Magdasal Palagi (Pray Always)
3. Sundin ang Magulang (Obey Your Parents)
4. Mag-aral nang Mabuti (Study Well)
5. Mahalin ang Bayan (Love Your Country)
6. Mahalin ang Kalikasan (Love the Environment)
Our group's name is Kapatid because we believe that we are all brothers and sisters. We want to create an atmosphere of a true family for the kids, for them to have an 'ate' (older sister) and a 'kuya' (older brother), that they could call their "Kapatid" (sibling).
