Dear Amsoc Members:
Attached please find a press release from Panam Network, a US-based organization that provides scholarships, leadership and life skills training to needy but educationally motivated students in the marginalized City of Colón.
We are forwarding it, as it features one of the students
- Jorge Daniels - we currently support with a scholarship, thanks to your generosity.
Panam Network is looking for sponsors, which is $25 per month per student. Any amount is welcomed and appreciated as a one-time donation, or ongoing. There is much need in Colon, as many students don't have the financial support at home. They use the funds for bus fare, or meals, as some go to school without breakfast; or supplies for projects.
Panam Network/supporters/mentors have been doing wonders for these kids, & we hope we can count on you as one.
Contributions are eligible for USA tax deduction and can be made online.
Any questions, feel free to contact me.
Gracias/agradecida/thank you
Marcia Henry, MA

Friends and Supporters,
It is with much pride and joy that I introduce your to some of the students that we have had the pleasure to meet and learn how truly motivated they are to be somebody despite many hardships.
I trust that you are equally as elated with the results of our efforts in Colon as we at PANAM Network are. Feel free to circulate as we believe that once aware, others will be inclined to support our efforts with their time, talents and /or treasure .

PRESS RELEASE # 19, November 12, 2014
PANAM Network proudly introduces three of the student gems who are active participants in our initiatives in Colon, Republic of Panama. These three students are shining examples of the dormant talent that would remain untapped and undeveloped were it not for the efforts of those who believe that we can make a difference in Colon, if only we dare to try.
Our Shining Stars of whom we are exceedingly proud:
1. Student Jorge Daniels: A 16-year old student in ninth grade at Colegio Abel Bravo, where he has the second highest grade point average (4.7) of all the students in his grade group which has close to one thousand students. Colegio Abel Bravo is the most historically prestigious secondary school in the city of Colon. PANAM Network recognized the talents of Jorge and arranged for Don and Gloria Inniss to be a monthly stipend sponsor as well as a mentor for Jorge.
ASPIRES: To be a doctor.
2. Student Mileyka Santizo Hall: An 11-year old, 5th grade student in the rural community of New Providence who has overcome many obstacles living with an extended family and a single unemployed mother. It was not long ago that Mileyka had to arise at 4:00 am to catch a bus, travel on an unpaved road, to get to school by 7:00am. Despite these impediments she has been on the honor roll since 1st grade. She is the highest grade point average student in her school (4.7) and a model student with a radiant personality. Her PANAM Network sponsor is Cecilia Dyett.
ASPIRES: To be a doctor and perhaps President of Panama.
3. Student Stefany Guerna: A 10-year old student at Republic of Uruguay Elementary School, Stefani is in the 4th grade and has a 4.7 grade point average which is one of the highest in her school. She lives in the city of Colon in a building scheduled for demolition that rocks every time a bus passes by. Stefani has been part of multiple PANAM Network Programs having recently been invited to be a stipend recipient and part of the monthly “ I am the leader of my life” Leadership Program implemented by PANAM Network in 2013. Sponsor is Allstate Foundation – Her Schultz.
ASPIRES: To be an educator
There are others who could benefit from a sponsor. Is it time for you to be a sponsor?
PANAM Network’s Vision
It is possible that despite our best efforts
We may not be able to change the world!
But we can certainly change the world of a child!
Child-by-child! If only we dare to try!
We welcome you to join us and try!
We thank our contributors and general supporters for their continued trust in lending a hand to make a difference, despite tremendous odds in the city of Colon. Your support makes it possible for the efforts of PANAM Network to reach and touch the lives of students in ways that we never even imagined. Contributions are accepted on line or by mail to: PO Box 268121, Weston FL 33326.
Blessings / Bendiciones
