The NINOY & CORY AQUINO FOUNDATION, INC. (NCAF), in partnership with Indie.go Media, and the Philippine Educational Theater Association, Inc. (PETA) will present on August 21 the gala premiere of PAMANA – an original docu-musical written by Rody Vera with the music composed by Ryan Cayabyab and Manoling V. Francisco, S.J.
The Ninoy and Cory Aquino Foundation, Inc. in its continuing effort to honor the memory of the late Senator Benigno S. Aquino, Jr. and the late President Corazon C.

In line with its Mission, NCAF has focused on three program areas in recent years: Legacy Promotion through the Aquino Center and Museum, Youth Engagement and Formation through the iamninoy-iamcory movement, and People Empowerment through initiatives in various projects conducted with the help of partners like Hanns Seidel Foundation, apl.de.ap Foundation, Aklat, Gabay, Aruga Tungo sa Pag-angat at Pag-asa (AGAPP)
