And while relations seem to be going well between the officials and diplomats from Belize and Guatemala, the relationship between the children from both countries is also being worked at through the OAS Peace Fund, through the arts.  Magdalena Talamas, the Chief of the OAS Peace Fund spoke of the projects undertaken through the Peace Fund and how productive they have been.

 

According to Talamas, the peace program is primarily geared for children but even the military personnel from both countries are engaged.
