Belize Service Project
Course Number: INED 499.01 - Belize Service Project
Course Description: Fredonia Friends Across Borders (FAB) volunteers are enrolled in various degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Some of the members will travel to Belize, Central America to work with students and teachers in our partner schools in Belize City. Throughout the year, FAB members collect donations of school and playground supplies that are needed at our partner schools in Belize. FAB also donates supplies to the Scouts of Belize. School supply drives and fundraisers are held from August through May. Those members who will travel to Belize in January plan lessons and make classroom supplies to share with their cooperating teachers. Through this service learning project, students are able to reach out to both adults and children showing them that people in the United States really do care. The school supplies and playground supplies that are donated are just a reminder of the joy that students share with the people of Belize.
