Educating Belize

This November we will travel to Belize to complete construction of one school. Additionally, we will infuse much needed capital into all three schools in the local village to build libraries, science & computer labs, recreation & sports areas, and purchase teaching supplies. This will be a community event involving volunteer labor from parents and other community members.
