The Belize Lion Zone 59 handed out Lions Quest textbooks to the Caye Caulker Roman Catholic School students on Thursday September 19th. The donation is the organization’s continued support to the Lion’s Quest Program that has been adopted by the school since its inception in Belize. Generally, the programs are comprehensive, positive youth development and prevention curricula that unite the home, school and community to cultivate capable and healthy young people of strong character.

On hand to deliver the textbooks was the Chairperson of Belize Lion Zone 59 Melanie Paz and the Lions Quest Director Robert “Bobby” Lopez. Speaking to the kids, Paz took the opportunity to share with the students, the Lion’s commitment to the program as well as the importance of Lions Quest in molding good, productive citizens.

Meanwhile Lopez explained that the books are a “special gift” and an “investment” in the younger generation of Belize. “The books are a gift from the San Pedro Lions Club. They paid for the books from monies raised through weekly food sales as well as other functions,” said Lopez. He added “for that reason we want you to take good care of these textbooks.”
