Missions 13 and 14 – Fiscal Year 2019-2020
Entering our 11 year, Resource Centers International is still going strong. We are planning two missions to Belize in our continuing effort to bring the educational tools important to the maturation of young minds and bodies. The Rotary Club of Cardington will be sponsoring these missions with additional funding from the Rotary Club of Toledo. A District Grant application will be submitted to the Foundation of Rotary District 6600 to complete the funding of the $23,000 project.
The host club for the first mission will be the Rotary Club of Corozal where 20 or more resource centers will be opened in the Corozal District of Belize. The second mission will be hosted by the Rotary Club of Dangriga/Hopkins. Twenty or more resource centers will be opened in the Stann Creek and Cayo Districts of Belize. Both of the host clubs supported missions during the 2018-2019 fiscal year.
This will be the second year in a row that two missions will be conducted by Resource Centers International in Belize. This is only made possible through the generous donations of time, equipment and money by the Rotarians of District 6600; the Rotary Clubs of Belize; and the many non-Rotarian benefactors who have also donated to the project.
Mission teams are now being formed for the two missions. The first mission to Corozal District will be completed just prior to Christmas, 2019: with the second mission to Stann Creek/Cayo Districts completed just prior to Easter 2020. We need a computer expert with knowledge of software and hardware as well as an early childhood educator for each mission. Don’t have skills in either area… no problem, come along for the experience… we will find work for you. If interested, please contact Mel Honig: email, firstname.lastname@example.org: or phone, 567 686 3406.
Many thanks go out to the Rotary Clubs of District 6600 and Medical Equipment and Supplies Abroad (MESA) who have continually supported this Basic Education Project.
Being Part of a Mission Team
There are a few mission team members who return over and over again to go on missions. Some individuals only go once. Many who have the opportunity never go at all. Going on missions can be a life changing event, whether it be one for Resource Centers International, or another mission to a country other than Belize or Jamaica. The following pictures show some of our missioners, from the United States or the host country, at work in Jamaica or Belize.
You can join us on one or more of the missions scheduled for this year. If interested or have any questions please contact Mel Honig: email, email@example.com or phone 567 686 3406.
