The generous financial support received from the Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) through this grant program will support several initiatives aimed at attaining our sustainable development goals and will see the upliftment of the Belizean people.
Through this disbursement, 197 schools across the country will see the installation, connection and improvement of Wi-Fi internet access for the upcoming school year.
