“Our mission is to provide sustainable empowerment to communities of Bocas del Toro, Panama, through education, self-determined community development, and positive respect of culture and traditions.
We are a locally embedded 501(c)3 non-profit organization that operates year-round providing sustainable education and community development support to the local communities of Bocas del Toro, Panama. We are a family of staff members, volunteers, community members, parents,students, and teachers connected by our mutual passion to achieve positive change for indigenous communities of Bocas del Toro, Panama. We are not seeking to have a small impact on the greatest number possible. Instead, our approach has always been to have a deep, long-lasting, sustainable impact within the small communities we serve.
As a volunteer-driven organization, we rely on over 200 volunteers annually in order to sustain our operations, teach our educational programs, and fund new community development projects. We strive to provide volunteers with a meaningful experience that results not only in a positive impact in the communities we serve but also in a transformative, eye-opening personal experience that has a long-lasting impact on their life and global awareness.”
