By Aaron Humes: The Twin Towns of San Ignacio and Santa Elena, Cayo District, are currently rated the best place in all of Belize to raise your children, in the estimation of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

‘El Cayo’ as the double municipality is also known, has established a full-time Child Advisory Body, Technical Steering Committee, and a Sustainable Child-Friendly Municipality Secretariat Office in partnership with UNICEF and the Ministry of Labour, Local Government, and Rural Development.

This was enough to earn it the second level of child-friendly status, rated as evolving in its child-friendly development cycle. It is demonstrating significant progress in ensuring that the rights of children and adolescents are respected, promoted, protected, and fulfilled to the highest standard.

The municipality plans to mark the achievement with a billboard at the entrance of town on the George Price Highway.

It held off San Pedro Town with 60 percent to 55 percent; Benque Viejo and Belmopan are joint third on 52 percent, making Cayo the best performing district.

On the bronze level are Orange Walk Town (49 percent); Punta Gorda Town (46 percent); Dangriga Town (43 percent); Corozal Town (42 percent); and Belize City bringing up the rear on 40 percent.
