On Friday, April 6, Commander of Eastern Division South, Sr. Spt. Howell Gillett, and staff took 25 children from various neighborhoods on the Southside of Belize City on a tour to different farms in Maskall Village, Belize District. The purpose of the trip was to open the minds of the young men and women to see that there are many alternatives to crime.

The participants saw the production of sweet peppers, tomatoes, and watermelon. They also saw the cheese making process. Minister Edmond Castro and his Maskall Clear the Land Committee had the pleasure of hosting and catering for Sr. Spt. Gillett and his guests.

The tour of farms in Maskall is not an isolated event and over the next few weeks, Sr. Spt. Gillett says that there will be other activities like the tour to reinforce that poverty is a state of mind.
