By BBN Staff: This week, the Belize Coalition of Service Providers (BCSP) has teamed up with the Canadian Fund for Local Initiative (CFLI) for a project designed to help Belizean workers and Belizean businesses that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
President of the BCSP, Dr. Dionne Chamberlain-Miranda, explained that the project has four major components: providing assistance to five small businesses affected by the pandemic; assisting 100 people who lost their jobs due to the pandemic with refresher training on job application components such as curriculum vitae writing, cover letter preparations and job interview skills; provide training to small, service-based businesses on how to export those services; and host a roundtable meeting with Belizean companies to discuss pertinent issues affecting the ability to do business and coin solutions to those issues.
Dr. Chamberlain-Miranda explained that the thrust of the project is to take a people-centered approach to address the economic fallout brought on by the pandemic, as opposed to leaving everything up to government intervention.
“We have to prepare the people out there who don’t have jobs to be ready for jobs, and that’s the reason for this training,” Dr. Chamberlain-Miranda said. “It’s the same thing for the service training, you will walk in with a business plan but you’ll walk out with an export plan.”
The first training session in job application began today and will continue tomorrow. Two other sessions on that topic will be held on September 17 and 18.
