Our Mission: We create sustainable programs that faithfully respond to the learning needs of the underprivileged Filipino youth. Our Vision: 2KK is a community of volunteers working together to empower the underprivileged youth by providing opportunities to enrich their education.
Who We Are.
Tulong sa Kapwa Kapatid is 2KK in short and translates to "To help our fellow brothers and sisters". 2KK is a non-profit organisation made by the youth for the youth. We create sustainable communities through the education and empowerment of underprivileged children.
It was formed in 2003 after the landslide tragedy of the Payatas dumpsite by group of teenagers from Metro Manila who decided to do small charitable activities every weekend for the children. This included doing prayer, songs and games that embodied values, which eventually became the values formation sessions called KAPATID.
A few years later, the children expressed how they too, one day would want to attend and finish college. Together, we brainstormed on how to fundraise for their education, and executing on their ideas. This was the start of the scholarship program called YAPAK (Yaman Ang Pag-Aralin ang Kabataan).
Living by saint Mother Teresa's words, we have formed a strong relationship with the community, which has lasted for over 15 years. Our reach has now expanded to Payatas, Escopa, Sampaloc and Smokey Mountain.
"do small things with great love”
- Saint Mother Teresa
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).
