Education provides children with opportunities to escape poverty, gain a voice in their and experience . But worldwide, more than 120 million children are unable to attend school.

 
Only 18 per cent of children ages 15-19 in the Ngobe-Bugle comarcas had schooling beyond sixth grade compared to the national average of 65 per cent.6

Inadequate social services continue to be the major issue in the remote areas where Ngobe-Bugle comarcas are located. Although the Panama Government is committed to children’s rights and welfare, these benefits often do not reach Ngobe-Bugle areas. The Constitution establishes free compulsory public education up to the 9th grade but indigenous children do not always attend school due to financial and economic constraints, lack of schools or transportation, and insufficient government resources.
