By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Human Development, Social Transformation and Poverty Alleviation through its Youth Resilience and Inclusive Social Empowerment (RISE) project is hosting an open day tomorrow at the BTL Princess Royal Park in Dangriga from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The partner agencies will be highlighting outcomes of the various programs implemented through the project since 2017.
Approximately 1,710 children and youths from Dangriga have benefitted from the various programs being implemented under the Youth RISE Project since its launch in April 2017.
The Youth RISE Project is being implemented through the Ministry of Human Development, Social Transformation and Poverty Alleviation with funding from the Caribbean Development Bank and the Government of Belize.
The programs include: after school literacy, computer aided literacy, life skills, security forces training, Girl POWA, sexual and reproductive health/peer education training, GREAT Schools and summer camps.
The programs have been implemented through partnership with educational institutions such as Delille Academy and Stann Creek ITVET; government departments such as the community rehabilitation department, community policing and department of youth services; and community-based organizations such as the Belize Family Life Association and Progressive Organization of Women in Action.
Some notable outcomes thus far include increases in reading levels of those in the literacy program, improved multiagency coordination and partnerships, increased enrolment and improved discipline of those in the security forces training, and increased participation in summer camps offered by the various agencies.
