The Belizean Kriol proverb, “wan, wan, okra full baskit,” roughly translates to “step by step, we will reach our goal.”  In this spirit, Full Basket Belize was founded twelve years ago to support those working for positive change at the grass roots of Belize.  Student by student and project by project, Full Basket Belize helps improve the education, health, environment, and economic development of Belizean communities.

The FBB Scholars Program partners with secondary schools across Belize to provide students with scholarships. We are supporting 34 high-achieving, deserving students in 2016-17.

FBB’s Community Grants Program has supported dozens of Belizean communities to improve their education, health and environment in the past twelve years.
