Monday, May 19, 2014. ORANGE WALK BUREAU Reporting: The innovative program called Harvest for Kids which is the brainchild of the Belize Camping Experience keeps is making raves among the youths.
The hit program’s purpose is to provide outreach to at risk Belize City children and young people by giving them an opportunity to get out of crime-ridden communities and visit farms around the country.
The objective of the intervention is such that they get to see how the farming communities live and how peaceful living outside of the city can be.
But this year, program organizers plan on getting kids from Orange Walk engaged in the program. That is according to the group’s new recruit Josie Gongora.
On Saturday, a number of children from the City were taken on a field trip in Blue Creek village to see the crop that will directly benefit them through the children’s programs they attend.
The grains from the harvest will sustain the Belize Camping Experience and can be found in stores countrywide under the Circle R banner.
