RESTORE Belize congratulates the 36 I AM Belize scholarship students honored at last week's 2017 scholarship award ceremony. Donor partners, parents, and staff filled up the Coastal Zone Training Room to recognize the 15 new students and 21 returning students who are fully funded under this programme.

Thanks to funding from our donor partners Belize Natural Energy Charitable Trust (BNECT), BEL, BWSL, Atlantic Bank, Atlantic Insurance, and the Development Finance Cooperation, RESTORE Belize’s I AM Belize Scholarship Programme is able to cover the costs of tuition, uniforms, and books up to 4th Form.

What makes this programme unique is its holistic approach in providing additional wrap-around services which include mentorship, need-based tutoring and counseling, internships, and the I AM BELIZE Scholarship Club. The scholarship program was established in October of 2010 as a way to empower people and communities to enable them to become the “conscious architects of their own future,” and as of 2017, 50 students have graduated under the program to become just that.

RESTORE Belize is very proud of our students and would like to once again extend our warmest congratulations.
