    Project #1

    Salt Creek School supports 225 children from ages 5 through 15 years old. Salt Creek is a rural Ngobe-Bugle Indian village located on Isla Bastimentos in Bocas del Toro, Panama.

    The village does not have access to municipal water or electricity. Over 90% of the village does not have any income and still fishes and farms to feed their families. Even with all of these obstacles, Salt Creek is a bustling and happy community with a great and growing school.

    Project #2

    Salt Creek is beginning operation of its very own medical-outpost that will serve a population of 1,150 residents. Basic and advanced medical equipment are in need. Due to the extreme poverty and very limited access to supplies of any kind, the village is always in need of basic medical and school supplies. It’s up to the few resorts in the area and their generous guests to supply the village school with these very important items.

    Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.

    Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
    • Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
    • The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

    Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
