By Aaron Humes: Belize Water Services Limited (BWS) has entered a four-year partnership with RESTORE Belize to sponsor its “I am Belize” scholarship program for needy students, to the tune of 40 thousand dollars for the next four years.
The state-owned water company also gave a check for 5 thousand dollars today to the National Sports Council to assist with expenses for the upcoming CODICADER primary school games being hosted by Belize from July 6 to 11.
CEO of BWS Alvan Haynes said that the RESTORE Belize partnership flows out of BWS’ own prior efforts with in-house assistance to children of staff members
Program Director Roger Bradley noted that despite catering to students of lesser-privileged backgrounds, a majority have completed their studies and graduated. They are awarded tuition, books, uniforms and other items and receive in-house counseling and other assistance.
Director of the National Sports Council Ritchel Dominguez revealed that Belize could have been sanctioned for not hosting the Under-11 games; instead, it has become a reward for Belize’s student-athletes and their visitors.
Games of football, basketball, volleyball and table tennis will be played.
