Founded in 1893, Hogar San Vicente de Paul (Compañía de las Hijas de la Caridad de San Vicente de Paul) provides care for 45 girls ranging in age from 6 to 16 by providing shelter, food, clothing, healthcare, and education. They come from backgrounds of severe violence and abuse, exposed to adult domestic violence, neglect and extreme poverty. Some of the girls are from rural areas without access to education and some have lost their parents to prison. The girls suffer from depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, lack of concentration, and as a result have low academic performance. Some of the girls even suffer from malnutrition, learning or physical disabilities. The orphanage is dedicated to improving the physical and emotional well being of the abandoned children living in the home and is committed to improving the quality of their education by providing access to information and communication technologies.

Founded in February 2004, Hogar Monte Carmelo is temporary housing for teenagers that have the aspiration to complete their studies, located at the sector of Bejuco, Panama. These teens come from humble families with very low resources. Usually these teens live as far as 2 to 4 hours away from the closest school. Sometimes to reach school they have to walk , take a horse or even take a canoe to get to school on time. This institute is like a home for them with all the normal rules. They stay in the institute for 15 days at a time, and return home for the weekend every two weeks. They continue in that routine until the end of school year.
