Thursday, July 23, 2015. BMG: A partnership between the Small Business Development Center, an arm of BELTRAIDE, and the Belize Audubon Society is expected to assist businesses located in buffer communities around protected areas.
Audubon has a community development and outreach program, in which communities are engaged in sustainable development initiatives to improve their livelihoods and support conservation. For over 20 years, Audubon along with various funders and partners have assisted in building resilient communities through skills training and capacity building in agro-processing, craft making, sustainable fishing, small business development and eco-tourism.
Our partnership will allow BAS to continue programs geared towards community development. Mrs. Amanda Burgos-Acosta, Executive Director, believes that this working-relationship will further demonstrate BAS commitment to empowering these communities through the execution of trainings and business advising by SBDCBelize.
