Caravan of Good Governance visits Benilde!
Last March 16, 2015, Kaya Natin! shared Jesse Robredo’s legacy of good governance to 289 students of De La Salle College of St. Benilde. The Caravan of Good Governance started off with Former Quezon Province 4th District Representative, FOI Champion and Kaya Natin! Champion Lorenzo “Erin” Tañada’s discussion on how students in themselves, and in their student governments can practice good governance, transparency and accountability. Former Cong. Erin urged aspiring student leaders to practice a more participative form of student government that provides for what the students really need and ask for.
Infanta, Quezon Councilor Lord Arnel “L.A.” Ruanto, on the other hand, discussed good governance on a personal level. He started by explaining why we are in dire need of good governance, and
which qualities of Jesse Robredo each individual must practice in their personal lives and their leadership styles. The Caravan ended with Benilde’s COMELEC announcing their school’s student
council candidates for academic year 2015-2016.
