There is a small community in the Bocas Del Toro islands called Old Bank which may be less fortunate in funds but which has an overabundance of smiles, happiness, and culture! The people here are full of life and vibrant, the children are sweet and courageous-not often seen without huge smiles on their faces. For ages, the kids in Bastimentos have been creative in order to play sports and make games out of their very limited resources. You will see them playing with water bottles filled with sand, vines from the jungle to skip rope, and baseballs fashioned out of rubbish to hit with bamboo bats. One thing that they can’t easily create is a safe, clean, proper sports field. This is a problem that can easily be solved with a little elbow grease and a lot of heart!
