Description

Initiate a school sponsoring program

School sponsoring, like the “Adopt a School” program of Ka’Ana Resort au Belize, allows to support the quality of care of schoolchildren.

Through such a sponsoring, the hotel can engage in:

  • Financing building renovation projects, partly or  entirely (classrooms, toilets, schoolyards…).
  • Financing or sending school supplies, directly or through the Pack for a Purpose program (if the school is located near the hotel). By joining the Pack for Purpose program, the hotel volunteers to collect scholar supplies brought by travelers, before to distribute them then to children.
  • Financing the purchase of computers,  or help the school to receive external donations.
  • Helping volunteering within the school, teaching or helping in any way. Volunteers can for example be hosted at the hotel if it is near the school, or the hotel can just mention the possibility of such a volunteering on its internet webpage.

Financing can be done with a direct donation from the hotel, but it is also possible to offer guests to donate through the hotel. For example, at Ka’Ana Resort the bar offers a cocktail whose entire income is used to support the school.
