    Abstract

    Three goals guided my McMaster project in Belize. First, I wanted to set up a scholarship that would provide each student in San Carlos School with 50% of the money needed to purchase textbooks. Second, I wanted to create an informal school library, which included building bookshelves, providing books, and creating a system for the students to check out books. Finally, I wanted to begin a pen-pal program between the school in San Carlos and a school in northwestern Ohio with the intent to expose the students from both communities to the larger world. The overall goal of this project was to promote literacy development through a variety of means, ultimately giving all persons involved the tools and experiences needed to become active global citizens
