Their tireless work year round in the name of Christ’s youngest disciples is a reminder that no one is least in the eyes of God. We visited their camp on Victoria Street this afternoon and spoke with assistant coordinator Josie Gongora who says the kids have been busy learning about God and respect for each other, but more importantly, also having fun.
Most of BCE’s funds come from their annual harvest and sale of corn and rice planted in the Orange Walk and Cayo District, which the kids get to watch over. This year, according to director and founder Alexander Perez, they have added soy beans. Those are being planted in several plots countrywide.
Perez says they are working with Caribbean Chicken to endorse Harvest for Kids and donate all profits from sales of chicken to the organization. They already receive a portion of profits from the partnership with Circle R Rice of Blue Creek. Harvests are due later this year but the harvest of kids continues this week and next week in Orange Walk and Hattieville.
