New GFWC International Club in Belize
September 17, 2018
GFWC welcomes the newly formed GFWC Belmopan Women’s Club and the GFWC Belmopan Juniorettes from Belize! The Belmopan Club has grown to 17 members, and they’ve completed their first service project: a uniform initiative. Many families in Belize cannot afford the required school uniforms for their children, so the clubwomen collected gently worn uniforms and distributed them to families in need. The GFWC Belmopan Juniorettes have an impressive membership of 40 young women. They’ve already had their first service project, which was to beautify the habitat of endangered birds. Both clubs already have great ideas for how to improve their communities, and we can’t wait to see them put those ideas into action. You can see more photos on Pinterest!
