Panama (EF) is a grassroots educational and
developmental platform that brings together students,
professionals, and outdoor enthusiasts. Working together with the
community, we strive to improve both the quality of life of local
people and the overall health of the environment in the Mamoni
River by developing and apply implementing responsible farming
and conservation techniques.
What does EF hope to accomplish?
We are striving to create a healthy and productive ecosystem in
the Mamoni River valley that promotes responsible environmental
practices while incorporating Panamanian traditions and the needs
of the local community.
With the help of motivated interns and volunteers, we hope to
bring together knowledge and experience from around to world to
address the important environmental issues confronting the Mamoni
River. In dealing with these issues, we hope to provide a unique
learning environment where students are encouraged to provide
insight and ideas to meet the challenges confronting EF and,
indeed, the world.
In addition to environmental goals, EF is dedicated to improving
the lives of local farmers (campesinos) through education while
striving to protect a traditional Panamanian way of life. The
future of the rainforest in the Mamoni River area depends on
everyone working together towards a common goal, and the future
of the area’s inhabitants depends on the health of the land.
We are currently looking for interns who can help us expanding our social organisation by developing marketing strategies and introducing an Ecotourism program.
Besides we are always searching for motivated outdoor enthusiasts who like to work in the rain forest by doing gardening or carpentry.
