Day 277 of 365 Things To Do in Panama
Day 277 of 365 Things To Do in Panama. Volunteer at an Orphanage!
There are a lot of volunteer opportunities in Panama. Orphanages all across the country need help with a variety of things; collecting food, clothing and other donations, organizing outings, teaching languages among a host of other things.
In Panama, the outlook for those underprivileged can be bleak. Many still live in extreme poverty even with a recent economic boom. Scarce resources, poor infrastructure, lack of education and undernourishment can add to the problem.
SOS Children's Village is just one option and has been present in Panama since the 1980s. The first SOS Children's Village went into operation in 1982. Through their work in four locations - in Panama City, Davíd, Colón and Penonomé, they have been supporting children and young people by providing day-care, education, vocational training, playgrounds and sports facilities. When children can no longer stay with their families, they are cared for by their SOS mothers in one of the SOS families.
