The Need

We have several locations in Belize to serve with. Different pastors have different dreams and visions for their communities and we are honored to be able to play a small role in that work. As an English speaking nation and with everything from children's programs to feeding initiatives to construction projects, Belize offers opportunities for anyone to be involved. We are excited about what God is doing through our partners.

Demographics

The influx of Central American immigrants, mainly Guatemalans, Salvadorans, and Hondurans, has changed Belize’s ethnic composition. Mestizos (people of mixed blood, specifically American Indian and European) have become the largest ethnic group, and Belize now has more native Spanish speakers than English or Creole speakers, despite English being the official language.

Economy

Tourism is the number one foreign exchange earner in this small economy. Although Belize has the third highest per capita income in Central America, the average income figure masks a huge income disparity between the rich and poor.
