Since its registration as a charitable entity in 2019, FAHWA performers were able to reach out and perform on different occasions held by the organisation itself and per invitation from the other groups with diverse audiences of different ages and nationalities. FAHWA delivered on its commitment to inclusivity and diversity by inviting other cultural organisations to join and partake in the performance of its cultural activities and other events.
Audiences were taken on a dance and music journey to various corners of the Philippines, from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, complete with colourful costumes including Filipiniana Terno, Igorot, Muslims from Mindanao and others.
FAHWA also promotes the observance of Filipino and other customs, festivals and ceremonies.
