Embera Quera School

We're thrilled to have recently begun our partnership with the Embera Quera School in the Embera Indian Village. We look forward to working with the school principal and teachers to identify the school's needs and supporting them in the most meaningful and sustainable way. Our first goals are to renovate the septic tank and bathrooms, thereby improving sanitary conditions for the school as well as the entire village.

If we're here while school is in session, we'll meet teachers and students and learn about the Panamanian school system, while being entertained by songs and dances performed by the children.
