Deborah Ann Sewell, the Manager of the BNE Charitable Trust Fund, told the Reporter that one objective of the trust fund is that no student should be turned away, and she has assured La Imaculada Credit Union that additional funding will be provided to satisfy all requests.
It is hoped that other credit unions in other districts will join the programme to be able to help students in Corozal, Stann Creek, Belize District and Toledo.
To that regard, St. Johns Credit Union, with branches in Belize City and Belmopan, as well as Wesley Credit Union of Belize City and the Toledo Teachers Credit Union may also join in.
Sewell said that The Trust wants to partner with the University of Belize, so that students pursuing a Masters Degree and above can benefit from the Trust, but a three-month period is required to put in place the administration and infrastructure.
She continued to say that in developing education, teacher skills have to be enhanced, and a 10-month long Teachers Leadership Certification Program will be sponsored for teachers of the Belmopan Area.
The aim of this particular course will be to develop teachers in the area of Special Education, and to help mobilize schools.
To facilitate the teachers schedule, the training will be conducted two evenings per week after school, and one on Saturdays.
Graduates of the course will be recieve accreditation for their Teachers Certification.
Sewell said that the BNE Trust Fund should be seen as a partner in the development of Belize, and other agencies should come together in partnership, pooling their resources to make money available for the development of the people, which will positively impact the nation.
