GK Sacred Heart of Jesus (GK SHJ) is a community that was awarded to the current residents in September 2005 or 17 years ago. It is located in Purok Lettuce, Brgy. Nanyo, Panabo City, Davao del Norte and is only 15 minutes away by tricycle from the Panabo Old Public Market. It is near a river, which enables the community to build a healthy vegetable farm and flower garden.
There are 42 houses built here with a Library, a Sibol school, a Multi-purpose Hall, a Chapel, and a Guest House. Each family that resides in this community has life-changing stories to tell, especially since most of them came from the classification of "poorest among the poor" before moving to GK SHJ. Here, you will find various vegetation and flowers in their community and home gardens. This community has already won several garden/greenery competitions around Panabo City and Region XI and has established itself as one of the tourist spots in the area. Visitors may see their bountiful gardens and learn more about the field of gardening. A lot of these visitors are also students and trainees from the Department of Agriculture XI.
Considering that the homes were turned over 17 years ago, the houses here are starting to lose their original paint since they have never been repainted. The residents have considered this to be one of their upcoming projects to continue attracting visitors to their community and being able to host them in a lively atmosphere. Apart from the 42 houses, this project will also include the materials to refurbish other facilities such as the Sibol school, Multi-purpose Hall, Chapel, and Guest House.
The project's total cost is PHP 70,939.00 to be used to purchase painting supplies.
