Bocas Del Toro, Panama: Primary School Playground

Fundraising Commitment: $2,500, including $150 non-refundable deposit

Serving one of the largest number of students on the island, a playground at the primary school on Isla de San Cristóbal, has the best opportunity to reach the most students. A playground would offer the students benefits beyond physical fitness. It would support strong play and social skills and contribute to a child’s ability to develop socially, cognitively and academically. The Principal and local leaders are very enthusiastic about the addition of a playground.

Surf For Life volunteers will work with the community to build the playground, including sidewalks around the playground area and potentially around the preschool that was built last year in Bocas Town.
