About Us

The Bulwagan Foundation Trust is a registered charitable trust that, at its very core, believes in celebrating humanity.

In expressing this more visibly, it is embarking on taking its plans for building a multi-purpose Community Centre in Wellington up to the next level. And largely with the support of government, grant-making foundations and trusts, and individuals who share the same beliefs and values, it hopes to accomplish that sooner with adequate project funding streams. So, we’re going to need a lot of help from you to make those things happen.

Filipinos are a people on the move. They’ve become at home in the world. In their search for relevant work and careers, a different lifestyle, better opportunity for their children or just plain wanderlust, they have reconfigured their new ‘homes’ abroad with relationships – especially fa-mily ties, or family-like ties where there are none, rather than geography as the defining ele-ment of what a home and being at home means.

Through individual initiative or with the support provided by whānau, personal networks, government agencies or non-government organisations, Filipino migrants all over the world tear through the veils of isolation to build a home wherever they are.

Culturally, the Bulwagan Foundation Trust represents all this and more. We welcome you to explore our main website and learn more about us and the community we serve in Wellington, New Zealand.

In time, as our membership grows on the ground and on the Web, we aim is to translate all this into a more permanent brick-and-mortar expression — a multi-purpose Community Centre.
