The LIU to Lease Land for the Establishment of An Agricultural Training Program

One hundred twenty acres of will be leased by the Leadership Intervention Unit (LIU) for the purpose of establishing an agricultural training program. The LIU, which was established by the Ministry of Home Affairs to curb crime from a multi-sectorial approach, has launched several programs to offer youth from marginalized communities meaning employment. According to the Chairman of the LIU, William Dawson this latest venture will aim to educate at-risk youth from Belize City on the importance of agriculture and sustainable farming.

William Dawson, Chairman Leadership Intervention Unit: “This trip is to look at 144 acres of land that is being donated to the Leadership Intervention Unit and this is courtesy Dr. Alvaro Rosado and we are accompanied today by Minister of Home Affairs and New Growth Industries Mr. Kareem Musa and we also have several members of the Coast Guard and the Belize Police Department and also Dr. Richard Rosado the Deputy Commissioner of Police. This is in reference of the Leadership Intervention Unit’s program to host an agricultural program with high risk and at-risk young persons around the country primarily in Belize City and so in this regard we came to check out the land and as you can see behind me it’s lush vegetation and has major potential, it’s right beside the river so we’re looking forward to bringing some teams to clear it out and to make it habitable and getting it ready for agricultural purposes and for growing animals.”  

The land is being from Doctor Alvaro Rosado, who says the property has been in his family for generations. According to Alvaro, the land was left abandoned after his son died in 2011, and recently he saw it fit for the LIU to use it for a meaningful purpose that may bring much-needed change in the streets of Belize City.
