PAMANA’s mission is to foster unity and harmony among the Filipino American community in greater Madison through social, cultural and educational activities.
The Filipino-American Student Organization at the University of Wisconsin Madison (FASO) aims to educate and spread awareness about the Filipino culture and history, foster friendships and identify with each other through educational, cultural and social events programming.
Do these mission statements read almost the same?
PAMANA and FASO have common goals! As an organization, PAMANA is pleased to endorse and support FASO in all their endeavors. Doing so allows PAMANA to extend our outreach to young Filipino Americans and live out our “legacy” to the next generation of Pinoys.
The UW FASO Philippine Culture Night is on Sunday, March 31, 2019, 3PM-7PM with a theme Sino Ba Ako? (Who am I?)
PAMANA members, supporters, families and friends and the UW FASO parents are invited to this free event!
The PAMANA board gave approval to provide lechon for FASO’s annual cultural event. Yumm.
Will you help us help FASO carry out a successful event by showing our hospitality and showcasing our Filipino value of Bayanihan, the communal spirit of unity and cooperation?
Two hundred participants and guests are expected to attend!
