A few words about doing something good on Caye Caulker. These things are well known to those who live here but for the rest of the world this will make these discussions easier to understand.
Most of the villagers will do no more good things like Earth Day cleanups or sports facilities for the people because: first you will need to find volunteers who have at least some self interest to keep them on a thankless job. Then you must warn them that along with the usual obstacles they will be criticised by some people without a break. It will usually take the form of pointing out whatever self interest they might have-as if that was a bad thing.
The critic will ignore all the benefit to the people and torpedo the project because it is a Caye Caulker custom. One by one the best people will abandon the effort to prove that they weren't only motivated by self interest. Then the project dies. This is the history of most social efforts on the Caye.
For those who haven't given up on a better world I implore you-support every worthwhile effort. Things are changing on the Caye. More and more people are giving back to the public good something of the luck that comes to them. Join us. Not with the field but with something. Maybe you will benefit and maybe only the football fans will but doing good makes you feel good.Try it.
