That little extra

Our participants and team
Our participants and team

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is in small things, bits of extra effort in the right places that we put in. 

Our extra bit for this year is adding two members to the team, a coordinator for the New Chapter of Penonome and a part time psychologist in Panama that will be focused on attending the participants.

Expansion in Penonome is developing according to plan, even though we started the program implementation a bit later than planned because of an unexpected challenge. The person responsible for the implementation resigned, but we managed to get back on track so all the activities are being delivered on time.

We understand our participants better regarding their abilities, dreams and situation, and we created a work plan for each of them. Then we decide on the development areas that will push them to continue their education and become economically independent.

Each year, around july – august we organize an activity to keep the motivation high. This year it was a two-day seminar - Potenciate.

This was the first year that Potenciate reached the number this high. 60 participants from the orphanages we cooperate with all gathered in the same place, and for two days we talked about leadership, communication, how to resolve conflict, how to talk in public, and the importance of networking. We also touched basis with personal subjects, such as dependency of other people and how to recognize if it is a healthy relationship that is developing. 

It was fulfilling to observe how participants connected, shared their experiences, saw that they are not alone and realized how many opportunities can open up for them if they stay open for change.

Their sense of hope gave us more energy to continue with our work and to do the best we can to wrap up the year motivated.
