Adopt-a-school Projects

Adopt a school has several components that we ask clubs to consider.

1.       A school is adopted for a 3 year period,  this is a program not a project.
2.       Clubs commit to visiting the school, meeting the teachers and students. To meet with their partner Rotary club in Belize.
3.       Clubs while visiting the community, look at the community the school supports to consider their needs.

The local clubs in Belize will work with District 5370 clubs to help provide technical support and other resources.  These clubs have a number of their own projects, therefore they do not have the financial resources to fund the adopt a school programs.  $2,000.00 can provide classroom materials and athletic equipment for a school.  Each club develops its own budget for the program working with the school.

Clubs participating in the adopt a school will be provided with a School Survey to help understand the history, students and teachers of the school along with the some of the needs they have identified.  We ask that the club complete a needs survey when they visit the school.

Since Belize is in a Pilot District, matching funds from the Rotary Foundation are only available if the club partners with a club in a Pilot District.  Clubs in Alberta can match funds through the Community Enhancement Program.  All clubs can use District Simplified Grants in Belize.

If your club requires additional information or logistical support the following Committee Members will be pleased to assist you.  If you would like to have a club presentation Committee members will be pleased to help.
