In the Toledo District of Belize, children yearn for grade school and high school educations.
They will do anything to learn — from going to class until 9:00 p.m. in the night high school to grade school students reading every book they can find by candlelight on the floors of their homes or huts.
But poverty prevents children from learning — they need schools, classrooms, equipment, and money to pay for just a uniform to attend school, the books they have to buy for classes, and even $1.00 for a school lunch.
That’s why we are fighting for them — we are the people who will help them get an education to change their lives forever.
