Bike with Purpose, Belize

Location - Caye Caulker, Belize

Caye Caulker is a remote island in Belize with limited educational resources. Often, students have to travel to the mainland to receive a decent education, and this barrier means that by the age of 12 many have chosen to quit school and find work. In 2008, The Ocean Academy school was opened on Caye Caulker as the first and only community high school. This provided an opportunity for education that previously didn't exist.

The Bike with Purpose project was developed to provide a student-led bicycle tour of the island, which travellers have the option to participate in. Our local team has partered with them to provide a constant stream of travellers and income and through the money raised, Bike with Purpose is able to help fund education programmes for students at Ocean Academy. There are now 125 students enrolled in the academy and those involved in the Bike with Purpose project are able receive the training and develop the skills needed for future employment opportunities.
