Howard Students to Spend Spring Break Helping Orphans in Panama

WASHINGTON (March 8) — For many college students, spring break means ditching the books and heading south for sun and sand. But, the Howard University chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB-HU) will skip the beach and trade their swimsuits for work boots and hard hats to help others in rural Panama.

Nearly twenty Howard students and their advisors will travel 2,000 miles to Coclé, Panama, 71 miles west of Panama City, where they will spend seven days (March 16-23) making a difference in the lives of the 28 girls who call the Hogar de Niñas de Penonomè orphanage home. The shelter houses children ages 7 to 18 years, many of whom have been removed from abusive and incestuous homes. The students will be traveling under the institutional umbrella of their partnering organization, Global Business Brigades.
