WE TRANSFORM INDIVIDUALS & COMMUNITIES THROUGH EDUCATION & MENTORING

Advance Panama, part of The Advance Project, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit education foundation that provides access to higher education for some of Panama’s most underprivileged students. Our mission is to Advance Panama, its people, and communities through education and strategic relationships. The purpose of Advance Panama is to share love in a practical way: by educating people out of poverty. First, this education initiative funds the complete university education for Panama’s underprivileged students. Not only this, it also provides a structure in which each student is personally mentored, taught English, and provided with leadership training as they pursue their academic and career goals. This proven model equips our students with crucial skills that will allow them to succeed in all areas of their lives.

The primary goal of Advance Panama is to cultivate proactive and competent leaders. Advance Panama is transparent in every aspect of our operations, including fiscal responsibility.  All donations to Advance Panama are tax deductible. It is estimated that less than 4% of rural Panamanian youth earn college degrees. With your help, this can change. Join us in providing the primary tools that can break the cycle of poverty.  Allow our students to be the first one in their family to earn a wage greater than $2 per hour.  By earning a university degree, our students can rise above subsistence level living.

We are currently raising funds for a new vehicle. Here we were recently moving some of our students in to their new home an hour and a half closer to campus. Our truck has carried students, supplies, the sick, friends, neighbors, even caskets. Help Advance Panama move one step closer to getting a reliable vehicle that will allow us to help our students and further our mission to #DevelopingLeadersInTheDevelopingWorld #LinkInBio #LatinAmerica #Education #Panama #Leadership #English #RockStars #CycleOfPoverty #Fundraiser #Thank youForGoingWithUs ...

Advance Panama

We continue to have daily success towards the most formidable of goals: Developing Leaders in the Developing World. But as much as it crushes our heart, we do have to accept that all organizations have setbacks. We have learned that one of the great obstacles here is the #mindset that comes with the #CultureOfPoverty. It brings incredible difficulties to everyone in its grip. Just like your #mommy couldn’t force you to eat your veggies, ultimately, each person needs to #choose their own path and it not be forced upon them. We are so incredibly sad that three of our students have elected to leave our program for what feels to us as a #LesserLove or the #EasyWayOut, but we believe that Advance Panamá’s investment in their lives and education will continue to take root for their ultimate maturity and #success. Even in the #difficulties, thank you for going with us.
