AbekaM envisions a world where multi-sector relationships unleash and mobilize the necessary resources to renew, amplify and protect the gifts in our target communities and for the people who live within them.


    Great change comes from collective action.

    The best solutions for communities are found within the people who live, play and work there.

    Successful partnerships need expert and mission-aligned facilitation.


    AbekaM's mission is to create corporate-community partnerships that support local models of social change for underserved children and youth, their families and communities.These are the people and places who have been traditionally excluded from resource-rich experiences.
