This activity also received the support and participation of the Regional Directorate of San Miguelito of the Ministry of Education of Panama, the school’s educational community and parents' association, and Glasswing International.

The volunteering activities carried out at the school included: painting murals, gardening and planting more than 100 plants and spices in the school’s garden, installing a playground and a garden of values, painting educational floor games, developing preschool educational and recreational supplies, among others. We congratulate each of the volunteers who collaborated in the renovation of the different areas of the school, thus benefiting more than 730 students.
