Providing a safe meeting place for the UMVIM teams youth church camp and others in Belize.
Describe the need affecting community
How will this Advance project help to address the need?
It will provide a safe, comfortable location for UMVIM teams to stay, as well as our youth functions. Also will be a central meeting place as it is close to Belize City which is no longer the capital but is the heartbeat of the country of Belize.
Describe the primary goal of the project
To build a facility that can safely and comfortably provide a place to house, feed, provide bathing facilities, as well as some limited recreational/team building activities. Initially we will limit the size but in the future perhaps add more space to make room for larger groups or multiple groups to use the facility.
Describe the change you would like to see in the community as a result of this Advance project
Two communities would be impacted. The LOCAL Burrell Boom community initially would be the most impacted. As I said we have a presence there at this time with a Methodist church and school very close to this site. We also have a house that is currently empty that we hope to fill with a person who would locally help Lisa Williams to manage the project since she is 2 hours north currently. I believe that the project would positively impact the community and also the local church/school in that area as teams would be interacting with the locals through these local communities.
