Kaisa Para Sa Kaunlaran started on 28 August 1987, during the time when one of the bloodiest coups was being staged in the metropolis. It was a baptism of fire. Democracy has just been restored, and young Chinese Filipinos (Kaisa founders), felt it was a good time to launch a new organization. The logo shows two hands clasped together with one heart beating for our country and pushing the wheel of progress. Our desires were simple, although the mission ahead was gigantic.
Kaisa Heritage Center housing Bahay Tsinoy and the Chinben See Memorial Library opened its doors to the public on 19 January 1999.
Our thrusts are three pronged:
- Cultural-educational – media, television shows, research, conferences, conventions, exhibits, museum
- Social development – low cost housing, medicine assistance, relief and charity missions, outreach, literacy
- Advocacy – anti-crime, restoration of peace and order, good governance political issues
