Established on February 14, 2013, AGFI seeks to complement the work of Adarna House and The Raya School.
Adarna Group Foundation, Inc. (AGFI) operates as a charitable, humanitarian, philanthropic and research foundation. Its work is premised on a concern for all Filipino children, a strong love of country, and the belief that literacy of a country’s citizens is a key element in a country’s growth.
Adarna Group Foundation was awarded a 3 year Registration Certificate by the Department of Social Welfare and Development on March 10, 2015 and Bureau of Internal Revenue Donee Institution Status on June 5, 2015. It was awarded Philippine Council for NGO Certification (PCNC) accreditation on October 26, 2015.
Every Filipino Child Literate
Promotion of early literacy among Filipino children, 0-4 years old, in partnership with their parents, their LGU and community, and other like minded organizations.
AGFI is named after the Adarna bird, the mythical creature whose song could cure any affliction. Our logo – an image of this magical bird taking flight, its head turned to see where it came from – is the symbol of our dedication to the legacy of bringing the healing power of reading to Filipino children. And just like the Adarna bird, we look to our roots to give us direction as we take wing.
