The mission of the PAANC is to preserve cultural heritage, foster education and social exchange, and provide humanitarian assistance and services in the wake of natural or economic disasters regardless of geographical location, but especially in North Carolina and the Philippines.
PAANC aims to implement cultural, social, health, and educational support and initiatives to improve the resilience and general quality of life of vulnerable and underserved communities in North Carolina and in the Philippines. It also strives to meet the growing and ever-changing needs of its members and of those in dire need of assistance.
