I Hear 'Ya: I don't know where you live (what part of Panama) but there are existing charity organizations all over Panama which already have expat participation. You might look into one of those. Of course you might want to start your own thing - just find a need and go. For ideas and ways to identify legitimate need you can start with the existing community groups like churches for example. And you want to structure your organization at least enough to make sure whatever you're doing is getting into the hands of the right people and not being abused or siphoned off. You might also contact the leadership of the existing groups and organizations in other parts of the country for ideas. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. When you do get up and running let me know. I always promote the activities of non-profits for free. And when in doubt, if all else fails, you can always give free English lessons in your living room. Good luck.
