Led by its President, Grace Tan Caktiong, JGF recognized the invaluable contribution of partners to its mission of help empowering Filipinos to live a life defined by dignity, purpose and active participation in nation-building. “Tonight is not just about JGF. We are actually honoring ten years of shared vision for our communities and collaboration with our partners,” Ms. Tan Caktiong said.
