By BBN staff: Like the many types of people in Belize, the barriers we encounter in different parts of Belize are unique to our environment and our community. While some dread the morning commute in the city, Frederico Cajbom and many people in rural communities have a different experience and journey ahead of them in order to end their day.
Frederico’s desires are what we might call “the bare essentials in life”, but for his family and communities like his, it means so much more. Growing up, Frederico’s family raised chickens, pigs and other animals while planting corn, nuggets and beans in order to earn an income and provide an education for their children. He remembers the journey to their land requiring them to walk through mud and bushes in order to plant, grow and harvest their produce.
For her family and people in rural communities, better access to roads means access to basic necessities such as the tools needed to work the land, safe and clean drinking water, quality health care and education. . It makes it much easier to transport their harvest from their farm to their homes and then to our tables.
In recent months, Frederico has seen significant changes in different communities in the Toledo district, including his own community of Mabil Ha, from the Ministry of Rural Transport.
“Thanks to the rapid response and support given to our communities by the Ministry of Rural Transport, they made my dream come true by improving water supply systems such as the well here in Mabil Ha, by building roads for farmers and working with other ministries to make agriculture, food security, health care and education a possibility for me, my brothers and sisters, our future generations and our people “Said Frederico in an interview about the changes underway in the Toledo campaign.
