The Golden Link College is an evolving educational effort established by the Theosophical Society in the Philippines and the Theosophical Order of Service Foundation Philippines, located in the northern part of Caloocan City, Philippines. Since 2002 it has been providing a transformational education for less privileged children. Many in the theosophical world regard it as a rare jewel - a model of Theosophy in action. 


The Kern Hall is where they hold all their programs and events. This hall was built with the generous support of the Kern Foundation of the United States, whose advisor, John Kern, offered to match the donations to Golden Link raised by The Theosophical Order of Service USA under its President, Tim Boyd.


Theosophists from various parts of the world donated to the fund. This initiative of the Kern Foundation was inspired by an article written by Diana Dunningham Chapotin, International Secretary of the Theosophical Order of Service, based in France, after her visit to Golden Link in 2007.
