My Hero’s Project With great freedom comes great responsibility
As the Philippines celebrates National Heroes Day on 31 August,
it also becomes high time to recognize the country’s present
heroes. One can be ordinary but inspire great things. Let us know
what your own hero has done that could earn his or her deed to
be awarded as
The Liberal Project.
To acknowledge initiatives that help create more freedom in
Philippine society, The Liberal Project was launched.
National legislators, local government units, civil society groups,
and school organizations are encouraged to nominate existing endeavors
that promote democracy, good governance, human rights, and free
trade, and that translate the benefits of freedom into activities
that improve communities.
“Freedom may be a complex concept, but there are people
who make us understand its real meaning. Those who help us maximize
our potentials to achieve our dreams are guardians of freedom,
and they are heroes,” said Jules Maaten, Country Director
of Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Liberty (FNF) that is sponsoring
Nominations for The Liberal Project are open until 31
August 2011. Entries can be submitted online at
www.fnf.org.ph/theliberalproject. The presentation will be
on 27 October 2011 that coincides with the Freedom Speech
with President Aquino as the invited speaker.
