Gintong Palad at Balikatan Foundation Incorporated

Dr. Joyce Peñas Pilarsky

What I experienced is that not everyone grows up under the same conditions. I saw a lot of poverty as a child and always wanted to be able to help decisively at some point.

My parents, especially my father as a lawyer, exemplified that sharing is an important prerequisite for a good world.

I also believe that no child should ever live in poverty and that every child deserves a decent chance in life.

Philosophy & Mission

The purpose of the foundation addresses various humanitarian needs and the promotion of science and research, education, training and scholarships, international understanding, development aid. As well as the promotion of youth welfare, geriatric care, public health and welfare. Apart from these the Foundation also contributed to natural calamities and medical mission.

The youth is the hope of our future.

A grateful heart is the beginning of greatness. It is an expression of humility. It is a foundation for the development of such virtues as prayer, faith, courage, contentment, happiness, love, and well-being.
