January 4, 2024 WCS Belize and Mahogany Heights Village Council officially joined forces by signing a community conservation agreement, which marks a significant step towards community development and the preservation of Belize's natural resources.
The agreement signals our support for sustainable initiatives that will see educational enhancement with installation of ceiling fans in the primary school and nutrition improvement through building of a new vegetable and fruit tropical greenhouse for the community feeding program.
This will benefit over 45 primary school students. WCS is also passionate about fostering a clean, environmentally friendly community with our bimonthly "keep your yard clean" campaign.
The Village Council is equally committed as it plans to focus on building climate change resilience with the establishment of a community fire brigade. Chairman, Jermaine Sanchez expressed that, “The fact that this project involves youth, and the elderly is testament on the positive impact we anticipate it will have. Our community welcomes partnerships especially with organizations like WCS who is vested in conservation.”
This initiative, which is supported by the Overbrook project, is crucial in addressing major human health concerns caused by wildfires in the area. Together, we're making a positive impact with Mahogany Heights!
