Promote a spirit of communal appreciation of Panama's cultural and natural heritage by connecting and balancing rural and urban needs with the benefits that can be obtained through public use and well managed sustainable green tourism and outdoor recreation
As part of its mission and objectives, Fundacion Caminando Panama commits to working with and funding projects spearheaded by small Panamanian rural tourism/conservation focused community organizations, as well as Panamanian non-profit organizations with similar goals. Projects that involve indigenous and rural communities must provide written evidence of “Prior and Informed Consent” from tribal/community leaders. Requests for funding and partnerships with private sector partners will be considered on a case by case basis and should align with FCP core goals. Additionally, FCP limits funding for overhead in projects from United States-based universities or similar learning/research-based institutions at 18%. FCP commits to refraining from funding or being involved in any type of political activity, including support or opposing of any political party or candidate.
