Preschool Starts in September and We Need Your HELP

Future Preschoolers

We are overjoyed and a bit overwhelmed to announce that we will be starting a preschool in Bahia Honda in September in collaboration with our friends at La Loma Jungle Lodge.  To my knowledge this will be the first preschool for any Ngobe-Bugle village in Panama and we could not be more excited to tackle this project and offer it to interested volunteers, but first we need your help.  Jaime and I have set up a Book Drive through a Bahia Honda Preschool Book Drive on Amazon.  Click the link and visit our book wish list so you can donate a book or two to help provide the children of Bahia Honda the gift of hearing their first story.  If you wish to make a direct donation to support this project visit our donation page.  We also need volunteers to help with classroom setup, curriculum development, and teaching so come down to Bocas del Toro and help us with this exciting project.
