Books For Belize

We help children in Belize learn by providing books, writing and craft materials.

These books and materials are donated and then shipped to local libraries and schools which are in desperate need for these donations.

Belize is a beautiful country with beautiful people but it is a developing country that can use quite a bit of help. In some remote villages women still bath their children and wash their clothes in the local river. Books are a real luxury for many of the children that live and go to school in these villages.

You can help with donations, find out how.
