We’d like to kindly thank Deb and Krystal Henderson-Guenther for their generosity and the time they spent fundraising and donating clothing and shoes for the children of Succotz School! In total, the students at Succotz received 24 boxes of clothing and shoes and a donation of $1700 (US). We greatly appreciate your efforts and consideration.

We couldn’t think of a better way to combine our love for cocktails and helping our local school, so we came up with The Succotz Cocktail: Sweet Corn and Banana Colada with a Choco Banana treat. All proceeds go to Succotz Primary School. Now who says a drinking habit is a bad thing?

In an effort to foster early childhood learning, Ka’ana adopted the Succotz Primary School, located in the nearby village of San Jose Succotz, in April of this year. Since then, we’ve raised US$1,275 which has helped us in executing initiatives such as the recently completed Bathroom Rehabilitation Project. In addition to arts & crafts supplies and the one-cubicle bathroom facility for the kindergartners, we’ve paid the US$18 yearly tuition for over sixty of the three hundred and sixty students currently attending by customizing our Summer Offer. Through generous donations, the staff was able to provide the school’s baseball team with sporting equipment and uniforms, which afforded them the opportunity to, not only compete in the National Softball Competition, but also secure the league’s first place.
We here at Ka’ana are committed to supporting the school with the following programs: Feeding Program, Scholarship Fund and Sports Program. We also plan to assist with the establishment of new bathroom and cafeteria facilities for the juniors and seniors as well as to fence the school grounds.

Ka’ana’s Adopt-A-School Program Summer Special, which invites you to effect change in Belize, has received great coverage from numerous online publications like Frommer’s, Hipster Travel Guide, In The Know Traveler and Sherman’s Travel. Its most recent exposure, dating on September 21, 2011, was in The Washington Times. Founded in 1982 and published by The Washington Times LLC, The Washington Times is one of the most-often-quoted newspapers in the U.S., thus reputed to be “America’s Newspaper.” The article “Book An $18 Night At Belize Resort And Send A Child To School“, written by inveterate traveler Andrea Poe, stresses the fact that US$18 “pays an entire year of a child’s school tuition.”
