Learning about Casco Viejo’s Neighborhood Association

Panama, Casco Viejo

This year, Casco Viejo’s neighborhood association AVACA celebrated its third anniversary.  It is called AVACA for its Spanish name: Asociación de Vecinos y Amigos del Casco Antiguo, and for three years it has been the voice of residents ,  businesses and lovers of this beautiful historic district. It`s membership is as diverse as Casco itself, with people from Panama and all over the world.  And its work is equally diverse: from the beautiful garbage tanks painted by local artists,  street and beach cleaning to educational campaigns at schools and government lobby, this group is hardcore and passionate about Casco Viejo.

It is not uncommon to see AVACA working together with other ngo`s like Sembrarte, Fundación Calicanto, Jardines Urbanos, Generation Peace Academy, among others.  They use sinergy wherever it is found to lift the bar and show how simple things can make a world of difference.

Here is part of the presentation given during its third year anniversary celebration.  If you wish to join, contact  [email protected]  or send Arco an email and we`ll make sure to connect you.
