PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Melodee Arevalo Mendoza and her husband Chris Mendoza are creating a program to teach Filipino-American children about their roots.

The couple recruited Filipino-American teachers to join them in creating Bahay Kultura where they all stand as co-founders.

They will begin Bahay Kultura as a summer camp in July at the Germantown Friends School in Chestnut Hill.

In October they plan to have a fall program at the Asian Arts Initiative to coincide with Filipino American History Month.

The program is for ages K-8 and will teach language, history, and movement through the arts.
