This is Our Fight
We make dreams come true for thousands of children in Belize. We send them to school. We build classrooms for them to learn in.
As of September 2023, we awarded 2,966 scholarships for high school and university students to go to school, and we purchased $787,675 worth of textbooks, uniforms, shoes, school lunches, and school fees for them.
In addition, so students will have classrooms to learn in, we built the Student Center and Classroom Building at Julian Cho Technical High School in 2018; the new Cafeteria at Corazon Creek Technical High School in 2020; and the final two classrooms at St. Benedict's Roman Catholic Primary School in 2013.
In 2022, we constructed a state-of-the-art Internet Center on one acre of land in San Lucas Village. And we pull the internet off a powerful satellite circuling over the equator! For the first time in history, students and families in nearby remote villages have internet access. Even when their villages don't have electricity.
In 2024, we will be dedciating a new three-story, six-classroom Tourism Building we are constructing at Toledo Community College in Punta Gorda Town where high school students will earn job skills in teh tourism industry. We intend it to be the best in the country.
In 2024, we will finish construction of our first Tele-Medicine Clinic in San Lucas Village, where we will use our satellite capacity to provide medical care to people who currently have no access to health care.
“I am finishing grade school. My teacher recommended me for this scholarship so I could go to high school. I live far from my grade school. The distance is two hours walking in mud. The mud is very deep. Some days it reaches my hips. I have dirty clothes when I get to school. The kids laugh at me. They call me a pig who plays in the mud. I really want this scholarship." — Eian, 13-year-old from San Jose Village
“My parents could not afford to send me to school. Some days we just have to sleep without eating for days. We don’t have electricity. But with this scholarship, I fight through my struggles. I study every night by lighting a candle, and I study until I fall asleep. I will never give up." — Apolinario Pan, 17 years old, 2021 Valedictorian, Corazon High School (Albert Foundation Scholarship Student since 9th grade)
"Struggle is the definition of my life. I don’t know what lavish living is. I go door-to-door selling fried tortillas to earn money to go to school. I need this scholarship! If you give me the opportunity, I’ll show you that although I’m poor, I always have hope because God works in miraculous ways. Education is the most powerful weapon, and I’m going to be a lawyer and change this world!" — Valerie, 14-year-old from Punta Gorda Town
