Air France-KLM and Gawad Kalinga formalize their partnership



Air France - KLM today formalized its partnership with Gawad Kalinga, an NGO from the Philippines which has set itself a goal to help over 5 million families find a way out of extreme poverty, thanks to a global development model.

Gawad Kalinga has already built more than 2,400 villages for the homeless, one of which was funded by Air France-KLM in the Philippines. Its founder Tony Meloto has won numerous international awards, notably for his entrepreneurial actions. With the support of students from top French Business schools such as HEC, Gawad Kalinga successfully promotes the creation of social companies, especially in the field of responsible tourism. The Air France Foundation has been supporting the education of young Filipinos at the Gawad Kalinga School of Entrepreneurship since 2014. Air France-KLM shares this innovative vision in its CSR strategy and offers Flying Blue customers the opportunity of helping Gawad Kalinga by donating their miles.
