Kabalikat is a non-stock, non-profit civic organization whose noblest motive is the public welfare. It was conceived and organized by Gil dela Torre in December 1990 to primarily raise the status of communicators to a position of high responsibility and importance and to enable radio enthusiasts to actively participate in public assistance particularly during calamities and emergencies or whenever there is a need to ensure public comfort and convenience.
As a civic organization, the KabalikatCivicom should promote bayanihan spirit, foster stronger and more cohesive fellowship among those involved in community radio communication; to develop dedication, discipline and professionalism in community radio services; mutual help and cooperation among various government agencies and civic-minded organizations by bringing its services closer to every sector of the community and to assist in every way possible in the developmental radio communication in the national endeavor of achieving reforms.
KabalikatCivicom is a truly universal organization whose officers and members are God-fearing and responsive to the public welfare with a mission to care and serve humanity, committed to democracy, respect for the authorities and the government.
The Kabalikat Philosophy
The object of KabalikatCivicom is to diffuse the light of civilization and make known to all the needy of worthy sentiments, cultured manners affability and untrammeled intelligence in ail our actions. KabalikatCivicom is not a mutual aid society. Mutual protection forms part of its program: every Kabalikat is obliged to protect his brethren and to strive for the brotherhood of man, The duties of man are twofold: duties towards his Creator and duties towards humanity. The different which we cultivate and strive to perfect is not that between man and God but that between man and humanity
