Travel and make a difference - Donate School Supplies to Students in Belize

Belize has an excellent school system with extraordinarily dedicated teachers, but the reality is many families, especially in more remote communities cannot afford to provide their children with basic school supplies.

Our "Make Space in your Case" initiative gives you an opportunity to donate school supplies to students in Belize.  Share a pound or two of your suitcase / luggage space for materials (pens, pencils, erasers, etc.)  and we’ll take care of the rest to make sure the supplies get to the kids and teachers in Belize who need it the most.

Island Expeditions gathers the school supplies, packs them off and distributes to the schools and students.  Here are some ideas of materials that you can donate to make a real difference in people’s lives.

  • Kids story books in English
  • Kids story books in Spanish
  • Arts and crafts materials
  • Coloured construction paper
  • Coloured pencils
  • Maps Notebooks
  • Solar calculators
  • Used textbooks for teachers any level
  • Watercolour paint brushes
