Community and Project Description:
The San Cristobal community is located south of Isla Colon in the Bocas Del Toro region. Located a fifteen minute boat ride from Bocas town, San Cristobal is a large island that has several different indigenous communities. The island houses rich marine environments, including coral reefs, lagoons, and mangroves, as well as a tropical rainforest.
Our local partner, Give and Surf, is a locally embedded non-profit organization of volunteers providing sustainable empowerment to indigenous communities in the greater Bocas del Toro area. They focus on community development and increasing access to education. Check out this video to learn more.
Working with the San Cristobal community, Give and Surf creates educational opportunities for these students. In addition to constructing the playground, volunteers will spend parts of the days working with the local teachers and students on various school programs. Volunteers will be fully immersed in the community and highly engaged in the project.
