DAKILA - Philippine Collective for Modern Heroism is an organization of artists, cultural and development activists, students, young professionals, and individuals creatively building a movement of heroism towards social transformation. It was founded in 2005 by multi-awarded writer Lourd de Veyra, musician Noel Cabangon, actor Ronnie Lazaro, Parokya ni Edgar bassist Buhawi Meneses and comedian Tado Jimenez (+).

DAKILA cultivates one's innate heroism, organizes communities of heroes, and creatively fosters social involvement by building one's capacity to make change, influencing individuals and groups to be part of the movement for change, and taking on advocacies and social concerns to bring about strategic actions that make real change.
