Launching of the 2014 Culture of Peace Program
March 20, 2014
OAS Office in the Belize-Guatemala Adjacency Zone
Support for children and youth is part of the Mission’s ongoing efforts in the Belize and Guatemala Adjacency Zone geared towards the promotion and development of a culture of peace. To this end, and in coordination with the Mayors of the communities on either side of the Adjacency Line, Melchor de Mencos and Benque Viejo, the OAS/AZ Office executes a culture of peace program that runs through the year. The program consists of music (wind and string instruments), singing, painting and theater workshops and training programs for Belizean and Guatemalan students resident in the area.
