Collectively, the Magsaysay Awardees’ stories paint a portrait of remarkable change and achievement in areas as diverse as rural and urban development, poverty alleviation, public health, the environment, governance, education, business, human rights, culture, and the arts. In continuing to recognize individuals and organizations that address these issues with extraordinary vigor, integrity, and selflessness, the RMAF seeks to honor the legacy of President Ramon Magsaysay and to place living examples of inspiring leadership and service before the public. From them, present and future generations may draw courage, challenge, and hope.
The Magsaysay Awardees Resource Center (MARC) allows a global audience to access the Foundation’s materials by or about Magsaysay Awardees, as well as selected memorabilia documents and photos on Pres. Ramon Magsaysay. It will have:
- A repository and hub of information on the Magsaysay Award and Magsaysay Awardees;
- A library with added focus on thematic areas and countries of Magsaysay Awardees’ work;
- A museum which will house Pres. Ramon Magsaysay’s Memorabilia and Papers.
