G Diaries acquired the Most Development – Oriented Environment Program for its August 5, 2017 episode on Masungi Georeserve. Masungi Geoserve is a conservation area sprawling with rock formations and limestone gardens taken care by the Dumaliang family. It is a story of transformation that is non – invasive and sustainable, respecting every tree and every rock one can find. 

On the other hand, Kapamilya Konek obtained the Most Development – Oriented Radio Magazine Program. This is for its feature aired last May 28, 2017 about Atty. Ramil Comendador’s inspiring story – from being a janitor to becoming a successful lawyer. His story is one of the strongest messages that Kapamilya Konek promotes, to give hope to individuals and families all over the country and abroad. 

G Diaries Team: Post – Production Supervisor & Associate Producer Jhoana Elechosa, Executive Producer Marivic Trinidad, Integrated Communications Head Jenie Chan and Production Coordinator Jessica Solomon​

Jenie Chan, head of ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya’s Integrated Communications, received the award along with the production team of the programs. She paid tribute to the Foundation’s production team, the cameramen, editors, producers and writers, who have started working together since the airing of educational TV shows in the 90s namely Sineskwela, Hiraya Manawari, Math Tinik, Epol Apple, Bayani, and Pahina. The same team is currently behind G Diaries and Kapamilya Konek. 

“So ang G Diaries po ay isa sa pinaka mahirap na programa na aming na produce sa loob ng 24 years pero dahil po sa karangalan na binibigay niyo ay very sulit po talaga ang buwis buhay at pagod. Simple lang po ang mensahe ng aming programa: Kung magsasama-sama po tayo at magtutulungan, maiaahon po natin sa kahirapan ang maraming komunidad at kung aalagaan po natin ang kalikasan, tayo rin pong lahat ay makikinabang,”Chan said. 

[G Diaries is one of the most difficult programs that we produced in the past 24 years. But because of this achievement you gave to us, all of our hardships are worth it. The message of our program is simple: If we work together, we can help our communities rise from poverty and if we take care of our environment, we will all benefit.]

Now celebrating its fifth year, Kapamilya Konek has evolved from a program that upholds smart parenting into becoming a link between families and organizations that offer services beneficial for them. 

“Gayundin, ang mga eksperto ay napapakilala natin doon sa mga taong kailangan ng payo o opinyong professional. Dahil sa Kapamilya Konek, ang mga Kapamilya nating nakikinig, nagkakaroon ng mga bagong kaalaman sa mga serbisyo ng gobyerno at mga organizations na nago-offer ng iba’t – ibang serbisyo na maaaring makatulong sa pang-araw-araw nilang pamumuhay,”Chan added.  

[At the same time, we introduce experts to people who need professional advice. Through Kapamilya Konek, our Kapamilyas who tune in learn about services of government and organizations that can be of help in their daily lives.]

G Diaries is aired in ABS-CBN Channel 2 every second Sunday of the month at 10:15am before ASAP. Kapamilya Konek is aired in DZMM Teleradyo every Sunday at 5pm.
