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.

Leda  runs the over all operations of  Abaka and Marcy Goma runs the program.

Abaka Foundation is a non profit organization 501c-3, where you can make donations. Your donation will come a long way, they have just completed two feeding programs in the Philippines with two of the Abaka Foundation students. They have also done a project where they provided chairs and tables for the special needs students at De Castro Elementary School in Pasig City, Philippines.
Abaka foundation is the only organization that offers a complete Filipino/tagalog Immersion program and a rondalla group which started this year they offer banduria, octavina and guitar lessons.
