By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, the United States Embassy in Belmopan donated almost US$25,000 to the Human Rights Commission of Belize.
The project entitled “Breaking the Cycle of Intergenerational Statelessness,” will organize and facilitate vital statistics clinics in rural and hard-to-reach areas in northern Belize.
“Helping individuals obtain birth certificates allows them to benefit from their citizenship and access educational and economic opportunities – breaking generational poverty and allowing them to access government services, education, and build prosperous lives for themselves and their communities,” the U.S. Embassy noted.
The U.S. Embassy said that funding is made available through the Julia Taft Fund (#TaftFund)of the U.S. Department of State: Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration which supports low-cost interventions that respond to critical gaps in protection and assistance for refugees, asylum seekers, refugee returnees, and stateless persons through local organizations.
