The Trust provides funding to organizations, individual programs and projects that aim at the empowerment of the people and community. Since 2009, over six hundred million Belize dollars have been spent in the development of this country through educational infrastructure, student loans and Micro Enterprise projects. And today, BNE continued to give back to the community. This time, the proud recipients of the much needed assistance was the faculty and staff of Libertad Methodist Primary School in the Corozal District. Victor Castillo reports from Corozal.

Last year the faculty and staff of Libertad Methodist Primary School saw the necessity of acquiring new furniture for the students of the school. With that in mind, the managing staff submitted a letter to Belize Natural Energy Charitable Trust asking for the donation of 200 large arm chairs for the students. In October 2013, BNE Charitable Trust responded to the schools request, a starting point to make their pleas a reality.

“As a trustee I feel very good because I know the kind of work that we, that the Belize Natural Energy Charitable Trust does, it has help many institutions countrywide and I know it goes a long way to developing the country, developing its people and improving the quality of life for many, many of our people who live within our society so I feel very good and proud to be a part of that and I look forward to continue working and ensuring that we continue to support the people of Belize. As you know BNE is in the business of assisting organizations especially educational institutions, today is a special day because we are able to assist the Libertad Methodist School with 200 chairs that were needed. They made their proposal to BNE we looked at it and at the end of the day we responded to their request and we are here today handing over 200 good arm chairs so that it goes a long way assisting, the student who will be comfortable in school at the same time assisting them to reach to their full potential whilst at school. This project costs a total of BZ$11,100.00 and all funded by BNE.”

When we spoke with Principal Marie Nunez, she shared with us her sentiments towards the donation.
