The Belize Project – Phase 2

In early August, I traveled to northern Belize for phase 2 of the financial stewardship and reporting project.  I worked one-on-one with five parochial schools and the general manager’s administrative office to finish building an accounting and financial reporting system using QuickBooks software.  These schools are in the Orange Walk Town and Corozal areas of Belize.  On average, the schools have approximately 110 students and New Life Elementary School has almost 250 students.  Only five years ago, New Life School had to close due to lack of financial support.  Through the leadership of principal Ruth Ku, the community of Orange Walk, and The Belize Project in Nashville, the school is now full of students, the teachers are getting paid to serve, and the building itself is a striking presence!  With a financial accounting and reporting system in place, the schools can more effectively manage resources and can apply for much needed grants from the government of Belize.  I am humbled to serve the wonderful people of Belize and I look forward to a long-standing relationship with the schools as they grow and prosper.
