Info about the Solar Powered Community Phones (Belize)

The rural communities of San Benito Poite, Santa Teresa, and Mabil Ha are remote villages that lack transportation and communication. These factors make it difficult to respond to medical emergencies and are an impediment to rural development. During the rainy season these communities are often cut off due to flood bridges and raging rivers. Without communication it is impossible to arrange for transportation to a hospital for serious medical cases. Additionally, it is difficult to arrange community development meeting with development agencies or other communities. Often meeting times are changes numerous times and when the meeting does take place attendance is low. The communities are requesting Partnership assistance to purchase 3 solar powered phones, one for each village. The communities with contribute labor, transportation costs and cash to the project.
