A delegation from the Film Academy of the Philippines, headed by Director-General Leo G. Martinez, attended the assembly as founding members.
Kilos Kaayusan has promulgated its Vision & Mission guiding philosophy as follows:
VISION: A movement that will lead, inspire, motivate and teach our people, especially the youth, to imbibe the right moral conduct and rediscover the innate goodness of the Filipino in order to build a peaceful, just, prosperous, equitable and well-governed society.
MISSION: To articulate and instill the principles and values of the movement through organized actions towards an empowered and responsible citizenry steeped in culture, education and technology.
The others who attended the April 8 elections included Jose Abueva, Alex Yano, Lenny de Jesus, Cielito Habito, Jess Varela, Francis Chua, Benjo Basa, Leo Martinez, Roberto ‘Ka Obet’ Martin and Anna Kapunan.
The movement has already lined up several projects and activities which include the following:
–Solid Waste Management Program
–Kilos Kaayuan Ayos Module
–Mangrove Reforestation Program
–Kilos Kaayusan Livelihood Program
–Doon Po sa Amin
The last program is a multi-media campaign in partnership with the Film Academy of the Philippines that aims to instill a feeling of pride among Filipinos through the production and exhibition of digital videos showcasing subjects that are indigenous to the provinces, and those that embody Filipino culture or unique aspects of it (i.e. local customs or practices, folk or historical heroes, native industries, etc.).
