Over the Summer, I was able to work with Peacework in Belize through the University of Arkansas. While I was unable to physically go to Belize due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, I feel that I was still able to learn about the culture, in both the casual and business workplace, as well as help the people of Dangriga. The goal of my project was to help consult with the Tourism Department of Dangriga to help develop their small business into businesses that were more appealing to tourists. Unfortunately, most people who own small businesses in Dangriga can’t support themselves with those businesses, so we put together a program to help the small business owners develop more efficient businesses. I, along with 3 colleagues, put together a 4- week “Small business Internship” program. Each week we focused on different aspects of business, to educate the business owners and give them the skills they need to create a business that can support them. Our program consisted of an assessment of current knowledge, general business resources, a crash course in finance, and advice on digital and physical marketing tools.
