Bocas School Project: Bocas del Toro, Republic of Panama
The indigenous Ngobe-Bugle Indians live on the islands of the archipelago of Bocas del Toro, Panama, where many schools lack running water, electricity or sanitation facilities. Children are often malnourished and may not attend schools beyond the fourth grade. The mission of the Bocas School Project is to provide quality education to these underserved children and to build the capacities of their schools. The Project also provides healthy meals to the students and supplies water and electricity to the schools when possible. Currently the Bocas School Project is developing a vocational program for the children who can't continue their education past the primary level. This project is championed by Rob Steig, Kai Frykman and Margo Carey who live in Panama and the United States.
