The Young Women’s Christian Association of Belize, YWCA, has launched a project focused on Human Rights and More Equitable Development. The projected, titled Addressing Human Rights for More Equitable Development, AHRMED, is being implemented in the Belize, Cayo and Stann Creek Districts. President of the Board, Dr. Sheree Smiling Craig said the work falls directly under the YWCA’s mandate of caring for women and girls.

The European Union is funding the project to the tune of a little over four hundred thousand dollars. The project is expected to impact at least five hundred women and girls.
