Non-Profit Update

February 15, 2018

Hello Enactus Belize Scholars Supporters,

 

Thank you for all of your support in this project. My students are so excited for the trip and can't wait to tell you more about this life-changing experience.

 

I wanted to give you a quick update: it came to our attention late last night that, unfortunately, our partnership with Ocean Academy will not work out for organizational reasons on their end. However, we have a "back-up" nonprofit organization eagerly awaiting our help on a similar eco-tourism research project in Belize.  The change is simply to a new organization but all of our previous commitments and objectives remain the same. I think this change might even provide a better learning experience for our students. 

 

Thank you again for your time and consideration, it means the world to both the students and me!

 

Cheers,

Bastian Thomsen

One week left to go!

Thank you so much to all of our supporters!!

 

The Enactus Belize Scholars are currently conducting research and preparing for their upcoming trip. They are excited about the opportunity to make a real difference, tie theory to practice, and learn about another culture in the process.

 

We are more than half way to our crowdfunding goal and I am so incredibly impressed with the C of I community's support of our students. Often times it is difficult to donate to a cause or organization because you don't know how the funds will be spent. In this case, donors can rest assured that every dollar they donate is being spent on the students and enabling them to accomplish their goal.

 

Having taken two other student groups abroad, I can attest that this project will positively impact the students by changing their global perceptions, helping them appreciate what they have, and perhaps most importantly, realizing that they can make a real difference in someone else's life. 

 

Cheers,
