Introducing four exceptional social entrepreneurs from the Philippines

Dylan Wilk, Fabien Courteille and Freddie Tinga will be in attendance along with Tony Meloto, in what promises to be an extraordinary evening.

  • Tony Meloto is CEO and founder of Gawad Kalinga (GK), a humanitarian organization that has tasked itself with the fight to eradicate poverty in the Philippines. Their philosophy is one of building empowered, united communities to ensure long-term, sustainable development.


    Their work is recognized worldwide, and ‘Uncle Tony’ has won numerous international awards including the 2012 Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship, and the 2012 Entrepreneur for the World Award at the World Entrepreneurship Forum in Lyon.


    In 2010, GK launched the Centre for Social Innovation (CSI) to serve as an incubator for young social entrepreneurs in the Philippines, inspiring local and international businesses to create jobs.


    To date, GK-CSI has incubated several successful social enterprises. Among them, Dylan Wilk created Human Nature (specializing in organic cosmetics, no. 1 in the industry in the Philippines for five years), Fabien Courteille founded Plush & Play (maker of plush toys), while Freddie Tinga co-founded Global Electric Transformation, a company that develops COMET electric buses to replace the highly polluting traditional Jeepneys. He has come together with GK to coach and train drivers who are currently at risk of poverty.
