The Mission Team to Belize is set.  Directly participating in setting up the resource centers are 4 Rotarians (with two of their family members) and 4 Belizeans.  Also helping/participating will be over 100 educators, local Rotarians and Belizeans in distributing and setting up the educational materials, preparing the resource center sites and receiving training in their use and care.

Mission dates are from March 11 through March 24 when resource centers will be opened in 18 pre and primary schools.  You can be a part of this mission.  Every day we will update you with text and pictures as we open the resource centers.  It is hoped that you will enjoy and benefit from the day to day activities of the mission team, faculty, students and Belizeans.
