Freshwater Cup Program
A social innovative program embarked by TIDE, a non-governmental organization for more than 10 years in the Maya Mountain Marine Corridor region of the Toledo District in southern Belize. There are 19 primary schools and 4 high schools divided into six zones in this environmental conscious program. It directly targets more than 600 youth through the creation of productive alternative activities that will motivate them to stay in school.In order to participate in this locally famous football tournament, each team successfully completes a socially or environmentally beneficial project in their community, focusing on the protection of water resources or addressing social issues. Both the sport and the community service develop important life skillsand the benefits go well beyond healthy physical development. Sports-based programs promote gender equality by providing opportunities for females to interact socially, master skills, and learn from positive role models. It also engages a melting pot of cultures.
TIDE continuous to engage students, teachers and community members from these communities for sustainable development. However, these schools lack resources that can aid in better services for the children in their care. The Education and Outreach program will ensure that aid is provided equitably to the schools engaged with for an improved education system in the Toledo District.
