By Mbango Evakise-keke (President, FECA Washington)
FECA Washington is the oldest Fako organization in the United States. Created in the 1980s, it was originally known as the Bakweri Cultural Association (BCA) of the Washington Metropolitan Area. However, by unanimous vote, the group agreed to change its name to Fako Elements Cultural Association (FECA) to reflect its inclusive philosophy. The current goal of FECA is to broaden its base to include all Fako elements in the Washington Metropolitan area.
