PEACE CORPS/PANAMA
HISTORY AND PROGRAMS
History of the Peace Corps in Panamá
The Peace Corps has a long history in Panamá. The first
Volunteers began work in 1963 and continued serving in Panamá
until May 1971. In February 1990, the Panamánian government
asked the Peace Corps to return, and the program has continued
without interruption ever since.
The central goal of Peace Corps/Panamá is to promote sustainable
community development, in partnership with Panamanian
agencies and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), in
Panamá’s poorest and most marginalized regions. Each project has
sector-specific goals related to this commitment. Our vision is to
be recognized as a development leader and partner of choice that
is committed to eradicating poverty, promoting social justice, and
fostering cross-cultural understanding. Our mission is to work in
partnership with others to promote sustainable solutions in the
areas of health, sanitation, agriculture, environment, and teaching
English, promoting the dignity of people and their capacity to
improve their own lives.
