La Escuelita volunteer experience was a fantastic experience. There was a lot of different activities to do throughout each day. The impact that we created for different families in the community could be seen each and every day. Evelyn is always caring and works with each volunteer to assign tasks that are best suited for their skillsets. There was ample time during weekends to take trips across Panama, and Evelyn was very knowledgeable in terms of recommendations. I highly recommend this opportunity to anybody traveling through Panama.

Arriving in Panama for my first volunteering experience I had no idea what to expect. However I was quickly welcomed into a friendly volunteering house and shown the ropes! It is close to supermarkets and some local attractions.

I would definitely recommend a visit to the 'Las Cajones', San Blas Islands and the Valle de Anton.

All in all this was an incredible experience and I hope to be back in years to come.

One thing I wish I did differently was coming with a slightly better base of Spanish, however I managed and my Spanish quickly improved.

Definitivamente la mejor decisión para mi primer voluntariado.

Una gran oportunidad para colaborar con los niños del sitio que necesitan apoyo escolar, un poquito de compañía y cariño. Y también apoyar a las mujeres que buscan salir adelante con sus proyectos.

Evelin es una excelente anfitriona, nos sentimos como en casa.

También se comparte con más voluntarios de diferentes países.

Volveré en cuanto pueda!

Gracias Evelin por todo!

Esté fue mi primer volutariado y mi mejor decisión, Evelin siempre estuvo en disposición de responder mis dudas antes de llegar a la ciudad, cuando estuve allí me recibió de manera atenta y muy amable, siempre fue reapuetuosa, directa y muy servicial, en casa todo fue bueno, me sentí cómo en mi hogar, Evelin además de ser una excelente coordinadora, siempre se mostró atenta a recibir los aportes que cómo voluntarios pudiéramos dar, nos brindó la confianza para querer hacer de nuestra estadía la mejor experiencia tanto para nosotros, como para la comunidad, sin duda recomiendo está experiencia!

L'expérience avec la Escuelita a été très bonne mais courte. Nous avons été accueillie par Evelin, qui est très reactive par message et très agréable. Elle est très investie et aime son métier ce qui est admirable. Nous aurions aimé passer plus de temps avec elle mais son investissement l'en empêche.
L'objectif était que nous apportions notre aide auprès des enfants de l'école située à 5min à pied de la maison. Maison que nous devions aider à rénover, nous avons donc vécu dans la poussière et sans cuisine mais nous nous y attendions et Evelin nous a vite acheté des ustensiles de cuisine.
