The Organizers

Jesse M. Robredo Foundation
The Jesse M. Robredo Foundation was established by the family and close friends of the late DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo as a means to continue and perpetuate his legacy of public service and good governance to our country. The foundation also aims to introduce and share the works and accomplishments of the late multi-awarded secretary.

Through the activities of the foundation, we hope to inspire and encourage more Filipinos to take an active role in the promotion of good governance and ethical leadership in our country. The initial activities of the foundation include a youth leadership camp that hopes to train future leaders of our country, and a memorabilia exhibit about the life and works of Jesse Robredo.

Kaya Natin! Movement for Good Governance and Ethical Leadership
The Kaya Natin! Movement for Good Governance and Ethical Leadership (KN) is a non-partisan movement composed of public officials and ordinary citizens who actively promote good governance in the country. Convened in 2008 by the Ateneo School of Government through Harvey Keh, it was co-founded by the late Sec. Jesse Robredo, Comelec Commissioner (then Isabela governor) Grace Padaca, and then Pampanga governor Ed Panlilio.

As a movement, KN advocated transparency, accountability, people empowerment, and electoral reforms in the government. By upholding these values and principles, it hopes to help make our government and leaders more responsive to the needs of the Filipino people and enable it to deliver basic services down to the grassroots in the most efficient and effective way.

The Ateneo School of Government 
The Ateneo School of Government or the ASoG started out as a unit under the Graduate School of Business in 1996 and was formally established as an autonomous academic unit in 2001. Since its beginnings, the ASoG has been faithful to its mission of working with effective and ethical public servants to build prosperous and just communities throughout the Philippines.

As a professional school for leadership and public service, the School creates an environment that fosters the development of new ideas and approaches, and makes possible a learning process that bridges the gap between classroom wisdom and real-world policy decision-making and governance.
