LEADERSHIP TEAM

In 2012, Marcy Goma the founder of Abaka Foundation who is a Filipina mom came together to talk about the possibility of creating a Filipino class with her Friend Leda Fabian where their children could learn Tagalog, learn about their culture, and be outdoors and learn the heritage . Marcy wanted her daughter to learn about their rich history and heritage! Marcy Goma and Leda then, envisioned a learning environment that would “fill the gaps” of their formal school education. They also recognized the power of learning in community and so the idea of Abaka Foundation was born, in 2015 Abaka Foundation was granted a 501-c3 status by the IRS. As Abaka Foundation offers a unique after school program, the state of Arizona has provided state tax credits that benefit the Abaka directly.
