By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, Taiwan’s Ambassador to Belize, David Kuan-Chou Chien attended the culmination ceremony for the “Let Girls Learn” program.
The training program was organized by the Rotary Club of Belize and funded by Taiwan ICDF under the Belize-Taiwan cooperative framework of the Project titled “Enhancing the Economic Empowerment of Women in Belize in the COVID-19 Post-Pandemic Era: Technical Assistance for Women’s Employment, Entrepreneurship, and Financial Inclusion.”
The program is aimed to train and empower 100 young girls between the ages of 8 to 13 that live in marginalized areas in Belize by providing them with socio-emotional learning and basic literacy focusing on reading, writing, and comprehension.
“Through the program, we hope these girls can build up their confidence, knowledge, and capacity thus help path the way to the brighter future,” the Taiwan Embassy in Belize said.
Attendees included the Minister of State in the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science, and Technology, Dr. Louis Zabaneh, President of Rotary Club of Belize, Katherine Meighan, and Managing Director of Love Foundation Deborah Sewell.
Also in attendance was Robert Pan, Chief of Taiwan Technical Mission.
Special invited guests included President of the Senate, Carolyn Trench-Sandiford, Minister of Human Development, Families and Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs, Dolores Balderamos-García, and Mayor Bernard Wagner.
The Taiwan Embassy in Belize congratulated Rotary for a job well done and pledged to continue to work with the Government of Belize to further enhance the benefit and welfare of Belizean women and girls.
