It is time for small things to make a difference in the search for overcoming poverty in Panama.
On the weekend of November 25-26, the Fundación Sus Buenos Vecinos of Banco General along with volunteers and residents of the Castilla de Oro community, were the pioneers in the construction of the pilot test of the new housing model of TECHO Panama.
Collaborators of the City of Knowledge Foundation joined as volunteers to build a house with the organization TECHO Panama, on November 25 and 26 in the community of Las Veraneras # 2 in Arraiján.
Did you know that one of every 4 panamanians live in poverty? That is why, TECHO Panama, through it’s project Connecting Dreams seeks to overcome this situation by promoting the side by side work between you, young volunteers and communities. You can be a part of this project by donating a small amount of money that will have a great impact in Panama.
Following the launch of the 2017 annual campaign: Juntos En Esto, TECHO Panama –located at the City of Knowledge- will hold on June 15,16 and 17 its #ColectaTECHO in streets and malls at the city of Panama and Chiriquí. More than 1,000 young people will mobilize to denounce poverty and inequality with a goal of raising $ 80,000 for the construction of 20 homes, initially in Chepo and Chiriquí communities, as well as other community infrastructure projects.
