A Tribute to the Panama Canal Construction WorkersStatement of Purpose The Houston Association of Panamanians, Inc. is a Texas registered not-for-profit organization which was developed to promote charity within the community and abroad. In addition, the association was further organized to advance the cause of higher learning, and to disseminate information about the people, culture, and country of the Republic of Panama; including the presence and contributions of Afro-endemic Panamanians to the national fabric. Four premises underscore the purpose of our organization:
a. Provide general transition assistance to individuals and
families in the process of assimilating into an evolving
culture in the United States of America.
b. Advance the cause of higher learning and skills
development through academic scholarships and work
readiness support for self suffiency. This ultimately translates into
constructive civic contributions.
c. Promote charitable outreach services to individuals and
families in need within or beyond the Houston area and
d. Promote socio-cultural activities to advance public
appreciation for the history and culture of the Panamanian
people; including folklore, foods, costumes, language,
dance, art, and music.
If you were to summarize the reason why this association was formed, it would be for this basic reason: “To Preserve the Past and Inspire the Future”.
