By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Alex Tyler, the owner of Goldfish Swim Schools in St. Charles, Illinois first visited Gales Point in 2014. At that time, a group of swim instructors from the USA  was unable to attend a trip to Belize to host a summer camp on safety in the water.

Tyler still wanted to do something for the children so he began a “CandyGram campaign” that saw each candygram giving a $1 donation – money that went toward paying for secondary school scholarships for kids living in Gales Point. The fundraiser totaled $15,500.

“My work in Gales Point, Belize, is so meaningful to me because not only does it align with what we do in terms of Goldfish’s core mission, but it’s been a way for me to connect with others throughout the Goldfish organization with a shared commitment to service,” Tyler said.

Since then, Tyler and other swim instructors have made 7 trips to Gales Point to teach children how to swim and complete various building projects.

During their 2017 trip to Belize, they also built a home for a single mom in the village.

The Goldfish Swim School instructors have also made improvements to a local school and playground in the community.
