Summary

Building Project in Belize

By volunteering in Belize you will get involved in a home building project that uses traditional and sustainable building methods, such as sandbag walls and reed composting, you will be helping orphans who, without the help of this project, would be desperately trying to find somewhere to live. The young people are referred to the project by the police and social services, and are supporting the establishment of this self-sustainable community farm dedicated to the promotion of self reliance, harmonious living and above all, providing a safe, stable and healthy home for abused and abandoned girls.

This development project is bringing a sense of community to the children abandoned by the legal system, while immersing them in inspiring sustainability initiatives helping to preserve local resources enabling the community to be financially independent. Importantly, this farm aims to become a transition model to inspire other community building and sustainable farming initiatives throughout Belize. Additional initiatives currently being undertaken on this project including food security sustainable agricultural practices, and preserving biodiversity through land management. 1 small dome, 4 caregiver structures, the kitchen and shower blocks have been completed and work has started on a 2 storey dwelling for 4 children. Volunteer in Belize and help to develop the community to provide better futures for these vulnerable young adults.
