The Four Worlds Foundation visited this city on February 20-29, in order to raise funds, meet with youth and get to share the work being done in Panama with NGO’s and the creative LA communities. Chief Phil Lane Jr., Giuseppe Villalaz, and Helen Samuels from Four Worlds were part of the tour and invited Chief Candido Mezua of the Embera Foundation to join them.
Sherita Herring gave us an extraordinary workshop on fund raising, where she told us how nonprofit organizations are raising funds for their projects. The Panamanian guests had a conversation with the Dreamers and with indigenous youth at the LA Cal-State University. Doug Tolchin took us on a visit to the Santa Barbara Marine Sanctuary and it was important to learn how it was created, which difficulties were dealt with, and how marine ecosystems are being protected.
