Top Ten Photos of the Entrega

Brooks, Ari, and Katie went to Panama for this year's Entrega ceremony, held in February.  
The experience proved powerful and picture-worthy, and we are excited to give you a sneak preview with these top 10 images from the trip.

1. Few for Change volunteer Ramon Pineda and a Ngäbe child walk along a road in the community of Raton.  Many of Few for Change’s scholars are from this area; this is the type of road many of our students walk on for multiple hours to get to and from school each day.

9. Students completing a puzzle with each of their names on one piece. Our students come from multiple communities and attend many different schools; some have known each other for years, and some have never met or only see each other once a year at the entrega.  It’s always great to see our students working together and getting to know each other during the entrega ceremony.
