We remember Professor Emilia Boncodin, the trailblazing Budget Secretary and icon of public service, on her first death anniversary with renewed hope and commitment to continue her timeless belief to bring the government budget closer to the ordinary Filipinos.

In line with her vision, we aspire for a Philippine democracy with working institutions and mechanisms, active citizen participation in governance and improved quality of life for every Filipino citizen.
