The future professionals of Panama
2020 can be summarized as the year of the challenges. With the arrival of Covid-19 we faced two biggest challenges so far: a new, virtual way of operating and delivering the program, as well as the impact on the budget. Part of these adjustments consisted of providing beneficiaries with electronic equipment, data and / or connectivity to be able to attend the virtual workshops and support them in fulfilling their virtual academic assignments.
We have managed to graduate our 2nd year participants and open one new group that received the program virtually from the start. We see differences in participants progress but we will know more exact results at the end of 2021 when a group completes the whole program online.
One of our top priorities for this year is working on self-sustainability projects that will give us more economic independence, such as giving professional orientation which will directly go to scholarships for those that can’t afford it. School for parents where we will teach what we know the best, working with adolescents and their transition to being young adults.
We are also very excited to share a book that consists from life stories that our participants lived and wrote. This is a result of many hours of therapy through art and writing modules of the program.
Right now, we are in recruitment process so by the next report we will be able to share more about our new stories :)
Thank you for staying with us for the last 4 years!
