Pathlight International is an organization based on Belize that tackled the issue of poverty by reaching out to children in school to offer a lot more than just financial support. They provide students with mentoring, leadership opportunities, counselling, tutoring and spiritual discipleships. Adrienne Parcher, one of the representatives of Pathlight International told us more.
Adrienne Parcher – Pathlight International:
Pathlight is a Christian ministry and we believe that every child has the opportunity to become all that God has intended them to become. We are working here in Belize partnering with the local educational system, in an effort to bring hope to children through faith and learning. We believe that if they have a faith in Jesus Christ and an opportunity through a good education, that they have hope for their future here on earth and the eternal.
The organization is working in partnership with the Ministry of Education to assists teachers at the primary school level. They are currently engaged in a teachers training workshop where teachers from all over the country gathered for the three weeklong event. The conference is being held in Jaguar Creek.
