Belmopan City, 11th October 2017

The Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan) donates Five Thousand Belize Dollars ($5,000.00) to support Belmopan Police’s initiative “Small Scale Farming in Schools” in the Belmopan Police jurisdiction.

This project is developed with focus on community youth empowerment through sustainable agriculture practices to lead young generation to a positive way of life. The initiative not only proposes an alternative for students to become involved as a team and help themselves in a constructive and productive manner and form a safer and more productive community, but also provides a sustainable method of producing food for their own food security and contributes to poverty alleviation.

The students in San Martin Government School, Garden City Primary School and Methodist High School are included in and will benefit from this project . 1,200 kids will be impacted by the projects.
