Edimund “Eddybo” Wengu was born here on the beautiful island of Guam on February 27, 1987. Throughout his life, Eddybo moved around the U.S. pursuing different opportunities, but ultimately returned to Guam to pursue his passion of helping the FAS community in Guam. Upon return Eddybo made an immediate impact within the community with the roles he took in various sports organizations such as the Guam 4 Stars, Hammer Volleyball, and Guam Elite.
In 2017, he joined the Mirconesian Resource Center One-Stop Shop, a project of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guam at the time. Eddybo quickly moved up the ranks from Case Worker to Case Manager and finally to Project Director. He proved to be a natural leader and worked closely with the organization’s executive team to transition the organization from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guam to Mañe'lu.
As the Project Director, Eddybo advocated for the FAS community, spearheaded new initiatives and inspired all who met him. He led the team with passion and created an environment that encouraged and fostered collaboration.

It was his goal to eliminate the stereotypes against the FAS community and empower the youth and their families to be responsible and respectful members of the community. He excelled and persevered during his time and helped so many people before his sudden passing on August 20, 2020.
