Project Panama Spring 2012 







Rotary Club of Franklin Project Panama 

Since 2004 The Rotary Club of Franklin has partnered with Rotary Clubs in Sylva, and Cashiers along with the club in Boquete, Panama to help in the restoration and repair of the El Banco de Palmira school located in the remote area of the Chiriqui Province of Panama. Rotary Club of Franklin Co-International Director Sandy Frazier along with Rotarians from Sylva, Cashiers and Boquete, Panama, assisted by non-Rotarian US volunteers, local parents and students, built and painted two new bathrooms for students, a new dining and meeting area and a remodeled sleeping room with a new bathroom and shower for the school's teacher. The Rotarians also refurbished the kitchen, installed a water purification system, made improvements to the single classroom, painted and cleaned the premises and provided laptop computers and furnished school supplies. Boquete Rotarian, Hector Sanchez, served as project manager for this year’s project. Sanchez previously was responsible for the installation of electric service and Internet in the school.
