Looking to get your hands dirty, meet local families and make a difference on your vacation?
Sustainable Harvest International is a non-profit organization operating in Panama, Honduras, Nicaragua, and right here in the Toledo District of Belize. The mission of Sustainable Harvest International (SHI) is to provide farming families in Central America with the training and tools to preserve our planet's tropical forests while overcoming poverty.
You are invited to join SHI for a day-long service project, which may include building a fuel-efficient wood burning stove, reforesting land, or planting an organic school garden. Working side-by-side with SHI families and staff, you will have the opportunity to learn first-hand about the cultures and communities you are assisting. You will also gain a deeper understanding of SHI's environmental and social efforts within Belize and across Central America. Your day of volunteering includes a traditional Belizean lunch prepared and served by an SHI family in their home.
Volunteer opportunities are available regularly on Wednesdays, and additional dates may be available by request. Please email email@example.com at least two weeks before your visit to make arrangements. SHI requests a tax deductable $70 donation per person to defray the costs of staff time and materials. Sustainable Harvest International is a 501c3 non-profit organization and donations may be tax-deductible.
