Project Launch:

A $496 grant was awarded by World Connect’s Kids to Kids program in 2009 to the Santa Elena Youth Sports Program in Belize to build its sports program with additional equipment and training. According to project leaders, many youth in the area have a great deal of responsibility at a very young age and their mentors were pleased to see a strong commitment to the program from youth and respect for the project’s leaders. The youth of Santa Elena do not have many activities where they are encouraged to take care of their health and take pride in their community. Building a successful sports program for the youth provided an opportunity to increase pride in themselves and their community.
