By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Human Development, Social Transformation and Poverty Alleviation will launch the Youth Resilience and Inclusive Social Empowerment (Youth RISE) Project on Wednesday, April 26, at Dellille Academy School in Dangriga Town at 9 a.m.
The Government of Belize has secured financing from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) to expand the Youth and Community Transformation (YCT) Project to at-risk communities in Dangriga and San Ignacio/Santa Elena Towns.
The communities in these areas are challenged by increasing crime and violence, anti-social behavior, and limited access to social services.
The Youth RISE Project will address these challenges by supporting the expansion of, and access to, existing social services as well as the development and implementation of new services so as to reduce social exclusion among youth and families in target communities.
