WANT TO GET 

INVOLVED?

There are three main ways to help the Anglican Schools in Belize.

DONATIONS OF MONEY
Firstly of course, financial donations.  We are chronically short of money, but never short of need.  We operate with the most minimal overheads, with teachers and administrators often buying supplies from their own limited resources.  We have no professional fundraisers, our entire fundraising effort is voluntary.

Every penny donated is accounted for and not a single one is wasted.

You can contribute to our overall education fund, or identify specific schools or projects which you would like to help.

You can donate by check in any currency, made payable to “Diocesan Education Board” and sent to:


Director of Education,
Anglican Diocese Office
Rectory Lane
Belize
Central America

Or, you can use Paypal, the donation button is at the top of this page.  You can donate any amount, large or small.
If everyone reading this would make a microdonation of $5 by Paypal (so easy and safe to use, you can use your credit card via Paypal) then many of our troubles would be over! 


DONATIONS IN KIND

The second way of helping is donations in kind.  We have a never ending list of needs, which can often be filled by the donation of goods.  Good second hand items are a huge blessing to us.  Educational toys such as Fisher Price, K’nex, games, jigsaws are hard to come by and expensive in Belize.  Books of course are always welcome, and to find out more about our book donation scheme, go to our "Children who read, succeed" page.  

The big issue is of course the cost of sending, but there are cost effective ways of getting goods here, everything from having visitors bring items out, to the famous barrels, right up to container shipments.  If you would like to donate items in kind, please contact click here to contact us and we will work out the best way to get your donations to us.

VOLUNTEERING

Belize is an absolutely beautiful country to visit, and each year we welcome volunteers to our Anglican schools.  Some come for a special project and spend most or all of their time at school, others donate a day or two out of their holiday.   All are made most welcome!  

Our objective is to learn new skills from our volunteers so we can carry the work forward once they have gone home.  Around half of our teachers have education qualifications, but everyone is keen to learn new things.  We always need people who can help in the following areas - this is not an exhaustive list, but it covers many key areas:

MUSIC - especially singing and percussion
VISUAL ARTS
DANCING
SCIENCE
GARDENING
POULTRY KEEPING/SMALLHOLDING SKILLS
MATHS
ESL
CREATIVE WRITING
SPORT - especially, soccer, softball, volleyball, basketball and athletics
EXERCISE
COOKING AND NUTRITION - for our food programmes
SMALL BUILDING PROJECTS - carpentering, plumbing, fixing up in general
COMPUTER SKILLS FOR TEACHERS

We are especially keen to have volunteers at our remote rural schools.  You will see Belize as tourists never see it!  We can partner with you to find the right accommodation, including home stays in some areas, and we will also ensure that you have some free time to enjoy the very best of our country.  We have schools in several popular holiday destinations also.

Please contact our Resource Development Director, Sue Harris, (click here for email) for more information on this exciting and worthwhile opportunity.
