Project

Cristo Rey Primary School & St. Andrew’s Primary School serves 600 preschool through primary aged students regardless of gender, religion, and race. Both schools are located in Cristo Rey Village and San Ignacio Town.

In addition to basic school supplies, it’s been our goal to award a new or lightly used tablet or laptop to each school’s top graduates to help them in their studies in high school. High school in Belize is not mandatory, like primary school, and tuition is charged, making high school a very costly endeavor for most students and their families.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of October 16, 2017

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
