Government of Belize funds Summer Programs

Posted: Thursday, May 21, 2015. 10:22 am CST.

Thursday, May 21st, 2015. BMG: The Government of Belize officially announced its Summer of Sports Program which will be funded by PetroCaribe. Press Release

The goal is to offer monies to existing sports summer programs in an effort to provide opportunities that engage youth and children in positive learning activities during the summer holiday.

BZ$500,000 has been set aside for this summer initiative and because it is not possible to fund all summer programs throughout the country, this year’s sponsorship will focus on sporting programs only, since sports and physical education are important to the early development of youth.

GOB’s Summer of Sports Program is inviting community-based groups, organizations and individuals who have been offering summer sporting programs for a minimum of three years to apply for a grant to assist with their expenses.

The maximum sponsorship for one grant is $10,000 and application forms outlining the eligibility criteria are available at the National Sports Council in Belize City or electronically on the Government of Belize web page: www.belize.gov.bz.

More information can be obtained by calling the National Sports Council at phone number: 227-2092 or 2277051.
