Means a group of friends in Tagalog,
the main language of the Philippine Islands.
We work with local minority communities in the United States
and the Philippines alongside makers, artists, entrepreneurs, businesses and non-profit organizations. We support them and their communities as they mobilize and envision their futures
to create impact while celebrating cultural uniqueness, valued deeply from Asian-American roots.
We exist to nurture these stories. Stories we can share to the world, to inspire and make better connections, to empower and enrich communities, creating better livelihoods.
