belizeBooks for Belize is a non-profit, literacy mission now in its 6th year. The goal of this ministry is to foster literacy and education in the rural villages of Orange Walk District, Belize. The program provides textbooks and workbooks for students who would have no schoolbooks otherwise. It provides appropriate reading material for classroom reading centers. A limited number of high school or college book scholarships are awarded for those who show academic talent as well as financial need.

The organizers of Books for Belize bear all operating costs of the program. 100% of your contribution goes directly to buy books and supplies or to fund Grants and scholarships. In 2005, Shades Crest committed $1000.00 for pur chasing textbooks. Founder and Director of the program is Carey Cowen Holman.
