There is a structure being erected and is in its final stages in the St Martin de Porres area of Belize City.  It is a multipurpose building that has come to fruition through the Belize 2020 project; a non-profit volunteer organization focused on improving the quality of life in Belize by supporting Jesuit ministries in Belize.  The structure will serve the parish, the school and the community with the idea of keeping students positively engaged and off the streets.  Under the Belize 2020 umbrella, there is the HEAL program which currently assists St Martin’s de Porres School in day care, preschool and elementary programs.  With help from St. Louis University faculty, there is also another program geared at improving literacy skills in early and middle grades.
