Kapit-bahayan Co-op Treasurer Awarded

Mrs de Luna is the treasurer of the very successful community housing since Pablo Lee took over the chairmanship of the Board of Directors of KCL from founding president Ruben Amores a few years ago. Mr Lee was himself for many years the treasurer of KCL which was founded in 1997 to provide affordable accommodations to families with low and medium incomes. 

KCL which is managed voluntarily by the tenants is the only Filipino-Australian organisation that received the ABS-CBN Global Bayaning Filipino Award in Southern Hemisphere. It is also the only voluntarily tenant managed housing coop that is able to expand their housing stocks by using their savings (sweat equity).
