Founder

Email: marcy@abakafoundation.org

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.
