The Vermont Academy group and I were lucky enough to get to immerse ourselves in the culture of the rural village of Dolores, located in southern Belize. We stayed there for four days and three nights with the local families. My friend, Charlotte and I lived with a family that consisted of nine people excluding us.

"My husband and I encountered Sustainable Harvest International through an Elderhostel trip in Belize, where we heard a presentation from one of the field agents, had a tour of a cacao farm where the farmer learned from SHI and saw the effect this organization has on the local community.
