By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The United States Embassy on Thursday presented three assistance grants worth US$750,000 to organizations that work with the Government of Belize.
In a ceremony in Belmopan, the US Embassy awarded the 2021 Central America Regional Security Initiative, Economic Support Fund (CARSI-ESF) grants to three organizations, namely Humana People to People Belize (HPPBZ), The Trust for the Americas, and Virginia Emergency Services Assistance Program for Belize. Each organization received a grant of US $250,000.
These organizations will work with the Belizean government on projects aimed at “improving healthcare, promoting youth mentorship, and providing safe spaces for young migrants to access government services,” said the US Embassy.
“We are proud to partner with this year’s grantees to support first responders who provide life-saving aid in emergency situations and to provide young people with increased access to government resources so that they can positively contribute to Belizean society,” said US Chargé d’Affaires, Leyla Moses-Ones.
The CARSI-ESF funds support U.S. Government cooperative efforts with civil society organizations to assist in advancing the economic, political, and security needs of partner countries in Central America.
