Support low-income kids at the Gamboa Discovery School Sponsor a child to attend the unique progressive school in the Panama jungle

In the heart of the rainforest, alongside the Panama Canal the Gamboa Discovery School offers a unique education

The classrooms are small but the kids dream big.

Our teachers are ground-breaking educators, willing to take on any challenge. They understand the importance of academic excellence, hard work and community involvement. They focus on the school's mission to give each child the opportunity to flourish. Above all, they value the opportunities available in Gamboa.

Who can spot the toucan first?

The Gamboa Discovery School takes full advantage of what is around - not just the incredible biodiversity and natural beauty, but the scientific research being conducted in the area, the local artists and communicators, and the global focus of trade - the Panama Canal which runs right past the village.

Putting this together, along with an amazing bunch of kids from a dozen countries, speaking a dozen languages, and we have a lively and unique educational setting of tolerance and discovery that we are extremely proud of.

Our motto is Education is Everything. But there is much more we can do.

We want to give more families in the community a chance to join the school, irrespective of their financial standing.

For $6000 you can sponsor a full year's education for a child from a low-income family at the Gamboa Discovery School. Sponsorship gives a child an education and future they wouldn't otherwise have access to, supports their family and the school, and benefits the entire Gamboa community.
