BEL donates to Ministry of Education


On Tuesday, July 29, the Belize Electricity Limited donated $50,000 to the Ministry of Education. The funds are to be used specifically for the construction of 125 handwashing stations to be placed at 110 remote primary schools throughout the country.
Chief Education Officer, Dr. Carol Babb has put out a call to donors to assist in getting schools ready for the upcoming school year. The appeal is specific to ensure that schools are able to maintain social distance in the classrooms as well as to ensure basic hygiene.
The Ministry has committed to ensure that it provides the necessary support to schools to ensure all safety measures are in place before the opening of the new school year on August 10.
