March 2010 - Women’s Month
March 2010 is being observed in Belize as International Women’s Month with the theme “Creating Opportunities for Development through Women’s Economic Empowerment”.
Each year during the month of March in Belize, the Women’s Department recognizes the achievements of women in all facets of society - family and community, science, government, literature, art, sports, business, medicine - and celebrates the contributions of women to our development. It must be noted that first and foremost, women support our nations as wives, mothers, grandmothers and caregivers and women make up almost half the labor force in Belize.
The Scout Association of Belize joins Belize in CONGRATULATING all women in Belize and takes this opportunity to salute and recognize the valuable work that women also do within the Scout program in Belize. Women also make up half the volunteer force in Scouting and we find it most fitting to recognize their contribution to this cause.
Congratulations to all women in Belize.
