The Belize newspaper “The Reporter” recently published an article about the lionfish jewellery programme that we have facilitated in Belize.
The article covers the training course where 14 Belizean women received instruction in jewellery making, accounting, marketing, branding and team building.
Our Country Coordinator in Belize, Jennifer Chapman, is interviewed:
“Dealing with the lionfish is really a social issue. What the jewellery does is add value to the catch of the local fishermen, as well as provide a source of economic empowerment for the women that make the jewellery.”
