A Panama calendar is created each year by the Peace Corps Panamá’s Volunteer Advisory Council (VAC). Proceeds benefit ongoing development projects of Peace Corps Volunteers in some of Panamá’s poorest communities. All photos and other content are by current Peace Corps Panamá Volunteers.
PCPF sells the calendars in the States and overseas and donates proceeds to VAC.
