Maya Center Women’s Group Empowered through Biopama Initiative

The Maya Center Women’s Group, a thirty-member group in the Creek District, have been transforming their lives and their communities through training provided by the Biopama initiative, which is facilitated through the Belize Audubon Society (BAS). The project is geared towards helping women earn a living through skills training and entrepreneurial guidance. Over the weekend, the BAS led an expedition to the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary and took a group of media personalities and social media influencers to meet with the ladies from the women’s group. Lucito Ayuso, Community Liaison Manager, Belize Audubon Society, explained more about the project.

Participants on the expedition also spoke with Federica Choc, a member of Maya Center Women’s Group, to learn how the project has helped them improve their business skills.

The Biopama project is supported by European Aid and the Organization of African, Caribbean, and Pacific States (OACPS) Secretariat. The project is just one of the many initiatives of the BAS, as it manages seven protected areas on behalf of the Government of Belize. The BAS operates in twenty-four communities where it bridges income diversification activity with conservation efforts.
