FNF has been promoting democracy, rule of law, human rights, and economic freedom in the Philippines since 1986. Over the years, FNF Philippines has embodied innovation as a brand in promoting freedoms through the campaign "It's All About Freedom". We integrate creative formats in traditional and contemporary initiatives to advance liberal values. These are further realized with the help of our partners:
Center for Liberalism and Democracy (CLD)

Kaya Natin! Movement for Good Governance and Ethical Leadership
Formally launched in July 2008, Kaya Natin! began with an informal meeting among three progressive and outstanding local government leaders in the Philippines. The Ateneo de Manila University-School of Government through Harvey Keh set up a meeting with Naga City Mayor Jesse Robredo, Isabela Governor Grace Padaca, and Pampanga Governor Ed Panlilio in Club Filipino on June 10, 2008. The three leaders shared best practices and found out that they had common problems where they can support each other on. The meeting was covered by The Philippine Daily Inquirer and published on the front page the following Sunday.
The article elicited hundreds of email reactions from Filipinos all over the world, expressing their approval of the three government officials and offering support and encouragement for their fight against corruption.
+iMPACT Leadership is an organization that seeks to contribute to the painstaking process of nation-building by raising the next generation of transformational leaders. It does so by conducting capacity-building activities designed specifically to help young leaders across the country reach their fullest potential, with the hope of them being able to create a positive impact in their communities. The raison d’etre is simple: if we want to steer the nation towards a positive direction, we need a community of inspiring, authentic and effective leaders.
The Ateneo Human Rights Center (AHRC)

Today, AHRC pursues its mandate of protecting and promoting human rights through various programs and services. It is engaged in providing legal assistance, research and publication, law and policy reform advocacy, education and training, institution building, law school curriculum development and values formation.
