Kaya Natin! lead convener Harvey Keh said the corruption and other transgressions in the Philippine government can actually be alleviated through a rigorous advocacy on good governance. That is why this leadership book not only targets those who are currently in the position, but also the youth, who will later succeed in governing the nation. To get the youth more involved in this movement, students and young professionals were trained in good governance writing
