One Voice 4 Change is working on two projects in Belize City and Belmopan with educational teams from PathLight International.

  1. Teacher Training

    • We have set up two AVer 520+ room systems so that teachers in Belize City and Belmopan can conduct ZOOM meetings with their teams, with teachers from surrounding areas, and with subject matter experts that will strengthen access to knowledge and skills in multiple subjects. 

    • We are recruiting ten highly qualified teachers to work with Belizean teachers to inspire joyful learning in Belize and Colorado.    ​

  2. Guitar

    • The students in Belize City and Belmopan are very interested in learning how to play guitar, write songs, and sing. We hope to provide guitars that can be in PathLight offices for group instruction, and guitars that can be checked out so that students can practice.​

    • Professional guitarists from Colorado and OV4C  will work with facilitating adult mentors in Belize to coordinate the instruction and instrument care.
