When staying at the Cotton Tree Lodge in the Toledo District, Belize, you are invited to join SHI for a day-long service project, which may include building a wood-conserving stove, reforesting land, or planting an organic school garden. Working side-by-side with SHI families and staff, you will have the opportunity to learn first-hand about the cultures and communities you are assisting. You will also gain a deeper understanding of SHI’s environmental and social efforts within Belize and across Central America.
Volunteers depart in the morning and return mid-afternoon. Your day of volunteering includes a traditional Belizean lunch prepared and served by an SHI family in their home.
Volunteer opportunities are available regularly on Wednesdays, and additional dates may be available by request. Please complete the registration form at least one week before your visit to Cotton Tree Lodge to make arrangements. SHI requests a tax deductable $70 donation per person to defray the costs of staff time and materials. Sustainable Harvest International is a 501c3 non-profit organization and donations may be tax-deductible.
