50% of Belizean children do not attend high school.
In Belize, secondary schools are not free
The government in Belize stops providing free education at age 12.
40% of Belizeans live in poverty
This is why many families cannot afford tuition, transportation, books and uniforms.
Without an education, the poverty cycle continues
23% of Belizeans over the age of 15 cannot read or write. This severely limits their future job options.
We believe every child deserves a quality education.
That's why we provide...
We cover the entire cost of tuition, so money is no longer a barrier to receive a quality education.
We provide everything for students, from safe transportation and nutritious meals to school uniforms and supplies.
After school, students flock to our PathLight Centers for tutoring, mentoring, and access to modern technology.
Each student is paired with a PathLight mentor, providing the support system they need to stay on the path to success.
