Rotario de Boquete found out about a community in the nearby comarca with that is really suffering during this pandemic. We started a Call to Action campaign and collect over $9,000 to buy food and sanity products. We will deliver multiple truck loads during the month of June, 2020.
Just a little yarn or fabric helps abused girls learn skills to become self-sufficient. We support Hogar Triskar in many ways, but one girl at a time may seem little, but it makes a big differences.
Thirty-five Panamanian teachers completed two weeks of instruction and practical experience in the area of teaching English to Spanish speaking children. These teachers work in the Comarca in the Chiriqui district of Panama. Thank you to Wichita Sunrise Rotary and Wichita West Rotary for sponsoring the U. S. Instructors.
Health and wellness of woman and children is a primary focus of our club. We provide wellness clinics and work with MINSA to insure access to health to all.
We are always supportive of students seeking more knowledge. Annually we award scholarships to outstanding students furthering their education.
Working with the new Bocas del Toro Rotary chapter, we put the finishing touches on the Quebrada Sal schoolroom we built. Children will no longer have to travel hours to go to school. Another project completed in 2019!
In 2019, we provided 600 needy indigenous students with school supplies and backpacks. These children have long walks to school and a backpack is essential.
Many Panamanian indigenous communities do not have bathing facilities or toilets. We built bathrooms including sinks, toilets and showers with clean water and septic systems.
We partnered with local leaders to build a safe and rock free soccer field and playground for our children.
