In March of this year, Lifeline Foundation held its sixth annual Black & White Gala fundraiser under the theme Give your heart to Cayo. Today representatives of the Foundation visited the schools that are the recipients of the proceeds of the event.

Marion Ali reporting...
“Just one month after the opening of the 2011 school year, children from four primary schools in the Cayo District are enjoying new amenities at their educational institutions. The work, however, did not come from any government or political funding. In fact, it was the efforts of Lifeline Foundation, a non-profit charitable trust, founded and led by Kim Simpliss Barrow, wife of Prime Minister Dean Barrow that has enhanced the learning environments of the students who attend the schools. The Armenia Government School on the Hummingbird Highway eight miles away from the nation’s capital, has been operating for some time with overcrowded classrooms. But tight space was not the only problem over at the Roaring Creek Nazarene Primary, which, in addition to new classroom buildings, received a refurbished cafeteria and furnishings for their feeding programme. It was a gift that the principal, Elisa Seguro, said she did not believe would crystallize into reality. Sharing in the happiness today also was Buena Vista Government School, whose infrastructure was literally falling apart. For Lifeline’s Founder, Kim Simpliss Barrow, the organization conducts two fundraisers each year and then gives priority to schools like these ones in most urgent need. But perhaps the school with much more than a need is Progresso Government School, which had a bat infestation so bad that it was interrupting the learning process. Simpliss Barrow said that her organization is also committed to helping children with special needs. She told us that the Corozal District is next on her list.”

LifeLine Foundation has committed to carrying out positive and impacting projects to help improve the quality of life of our Belizean children.
