It was a bright and sunny August day in 2007 when 5 young second generation Filipinos, the children of migrant workers, formalised an idea into an organisation. Present were signatories at the inauguration; the Lord Mayor of Westminster, Chairman of the Westminster Partnership for Racial Equality (WPRE) and the Deputy Chief of Mission from the Philippine Embassy,
The idea behind it all was to give a generation of under-represented young Filipinos a voice and to provide a vehicle for future generations to educate themselves, to be inspired and to feel empowered to make a difference. The legacy of this for Philippine Generations are the people we have inspired and enabled to make a difference. The organisations that have grown and those we have collaborated with since 2007 are testament that the decision to focus on the community in the UK was the right one.
Kapihan Sa Pasuguan with Philippine Generations 6:30 on Thursday, 19th November 2015 at the Philippine Embassy, 10 Suffolk Street, London W1Y 4HG
At our first AGM in 2008, we reported on our first year’s activities, our financial position and we had 3 fantastic speakers talk about their experiences as Filipinos in the UK; Peps Villanueva spoke about his migration to the UK from the Philippines and proactivity in the community and the need for young Filipinos to be seen and heard. Omar Shah described his hard work in establishing his restaurant and growing up in the UK as a second generation Filipino. We finally had Rina Atienza talk about her experiences as a young Filipino who lived through the transition of moving to the UK at a young age.
This year we will have speakers once again sharing their story as well as a few announcements from the PG team and a review of what has happened this past year.
We invite you all to attend and share some stories of how our community has grown and developed over these past 8 years! Please RSVP here!
