Project Ambergris Caye 2021
In February, 2021 the
volunteers of CDRS International will embark on their fifth playground build.
This time, the group will be headed to an island off the coast of Belize called
Ambergris Caye. We have reconnected with
our partner from Nicaragua, Patrick Hiebert, who will be our contact on the
ground in Belize. A specific location has not yet been chosen, but we will be
building in a suburb of San Pedro called San Mateo.
thought about the islands of Belize is beautiful sandy beaches and all-inclusive
resorts. However, off the beaten track and away from the eyes of the tourists
are children and families who struggle to make ends meet. Although their basic
needs have been met (food, water, clothing), they have very little in the way
of school supplies and play apparatus.
Our mission statement
remains “Making a
difference in the lives of others through donations and fund-raising, to
provide recreational apparatus, educational material and/or services for youth
in countries less fortunate” and we are hoping to take
along school supplies, sports equipment and uniforms in addition to the
playground that was so generously donated by St. Pius School.
again, our volunteers are prepared to pay their own way to help make a
difference in the lives of others. We are excited about our upcoming project,
and will be holding various fundraisers to assist in the costs of transporting
our container across the world. Upcoming events will continue to be updated
on this website or on our Facebook page.
