Panama Surf & Service Fundraiser*
Our primary service objective will be completing a renovation project in the area of Las Cañas. Specifically, we will be working on restoring, renovating, and beautifying the Comedor in the school. The comedor is where the lunch is prepared each day for the students and where the students eat. It is in dire need of repair, and it will directly improve the daily lives of the students and staff at the school.
The second part of our service project will be focused on recreation and physical education for students in the Playa Venoa, Las Tablas, and Pedesi areas. For a portion of our trip, Knowledge on the Run students, along with the staff at Beach Break Surf Camp and Waved Foundation, will host an afternoon sports camp. This camp will include rugby lessons, soccer lesson, surf lessons, and martial arts classes. The Knowledge on the Run students will be in charge of planning and executing a portion of each of these activities. The children from Venao, Las Tablas, and Pedesi are not as privileged as their American counterparts, having the privilege to participate in something like this is a welcomed relief from their daily routines of school and sometimes, helping out around the house, and work.
To take on both of these projects effectively, we hope to raise $4000 to cover the cost of:
Mosquito Nets for windows
Mosquito Protection for the doors to the kitchen
Paint and Painting Materials
Building tools and Materials
Sporting Equipment including rugby balls, soccer balls, cones, goals, and more.
We sincerely thank you for any donation you can spare. This area of Panama is near and dear to us and we hope to make a difference while working with the Waved Foundation.
