AGM Cancer Society Belmopan

The School Outreach Programme is an initiative by the George Price Centre for Peace and Development aimed at hosting students from outlying areas who otherwise might not have the opportunity to visit our Capital.  The Programme has been established in memory of Mr. Price and takes place in the week of his birthday, January 15.

Last Friday, as part of the 2013 programme, we welcomed 51 students, their principal and 3 teachers from Libertad Methodist School.  They were given a comprehensive tour of the George Price Centre and took part in the quiz “George Price – man of Purpose and Vision”.  The group also enjoyed a grand tour of Belmopan, the highlight being a guided tour of the National Assembly.  After enjoying a good lunch, the students took part in the Centre’s Conflict Resolution Activities, learning more about the dangers and opportunities of conflict; how to find win/win solutions to a conflict and how to effectively manage stress and anger.  The visit ended with a friendship-exchange between the Libertad students and their counterparts from St. Martin Government School.  A great time was had by all!

The Centre seeks to host more students from all over Belize to gain a greater knowledge of the George Price Centre and an appreciation for our Capital!

On January 15, 2013, Mr. Price would have celebrated his 94th birthday.  The day of remembrance started with a special Birthday Memorial Mass at Our Lady of Guadalupe Co-Cathedral in Belmopan.  Throughout the day, the George Price Centre for Peace and Development then welcomed over 600 visitors to the exhibitions “Reflections of a Hero” and “Man of Purpose and Vision“.

Though he departed from this life in 2011, George Price will forever live on in our hearts and his legacy will never be forgotten!

 All are welcome to visit the exhibitions at the Centre, Monday through Friday from 8.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.

Grant Proposal Makeover
Transfor Your Request from No to Yes
By Cheryl A. Clarke and Susan P. Fox 

Nine out of ten grant proposals are rejected. Grant Proposal Makeover shows how to transform lackluster proposals into excellent ones–that have the potential to be funded. This book stands out from other traditional grant-writing books because it illustrates common flaws and problems in proposals and shows exactly how to fix them. It also includes helpful tips and quotes from foundation program officers and funding community insiders taken from an international survey of foundation professionals. (Amazon)
