I stayed in a rural community in Panama as part of a ThinkImpact Social Innovation program in January 2015. It was a wonderful experience to stay with the community members and experience life as they would. They were very friendly and we experienced a very different life from what we are used to. The concept of the program is wonderful - using local assets to bring about social change. I learnt a lot-importance of non verbal communication, interacting with community members to discover details about their lives and integrating ourselves in the community to help being sustainable change. It was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend this program!
