Kaya Natin! was founded by the Ateneo de Manila University-School of Government together with local government leaders such as Govs. Eddie Panlilio of Pampanga and Grace Padaca of Isabela, Mayors Jesse Robredo of Naga City and Sonia Lorenzo of San Isidro, Nueva Ecija. The main aim of the movement is to bring Filipinos together to join the fight for good governance and ethical leadership.
One of the main activities of Kaya Natin is to visit colleges and universities all over the Philippines and inspire the Filipino youth to become agents of change in the country.
Talking before 700 scholars and student leaders at FEU, Panlilio said the country’s leaders should address three major issues: the rampant corruption in the government, the growing number of Filipinos who live in poverty and the rising number of cases involving the disappearance of young Filipino activists.
