A message from the President and Founder of FUSODEP

Dear friends:

In 2002, an amazing dream began to take form: bring opportunities and solutions to the vulnerable populations in the province of Veraguas and the Ngobe-Bugle Reservation.

During our relatively short history, we have recognized that it´s possible to create a better world by spreading great values, humility, and goodwill by ways of social projects. We have strived to develop many projects that have impacted people from many backgrounds and ages including: play grounds, housing, homes for poor families, scholarships for children and youth, agro-educational farms, connecting remote towns with health services, the construction of roads and bridges, the collection of food and clothes for poor families, and the work we have done to form groups of farmers and artisans. If the land and roads of the towns of El Bale, Cerro Plata, San Jose, and Virigua could talk, then they would tell you about the labor and effort FUSODEP has put in to achieve holistic development.

Today we approach development by not only working with individuals but also with communities and groups. Our belief is that in order for development to be sustainable, it needs to laser in on themes such as entrepreneurship, education, environmental consciousness, and integrity.

FUSODEP aims to propel people forward across Panama no matter if they are from a small town or the capital. I invite you to be part of our cause whether it be through our innovative educational programs, volunteer work, FUSODEP's scholarship program for local students, etc. Our endeavors and successes have no limits with allies such as yourself.

Thank you very much,


Roberto González


President and Founder of FUSODEP
