Women's Social Development




27 Far West Street
San Ignacio


Women’s empowerment is an ongoing goal, and project possibilities are endless. Cornerstone volunteers work extensively with other local groups to serve the interests of women. It focuses on domestic violence response and prevention, women’s health issues, training peer counselors, working to establish a safe shelter, conducting self-esteem workshops, offering marketable skills training, and planning events for women.

Cornerstone Foundation is a small community development organization in the multi-cultural Central American country of Belize. For more information on women in Belize, please see http://www.cornerstonefoundationbelize.org/women.htm.

Cornerstone provides accommodations (dorm style), a hot home cooked Belizean midday meal on work days, orientations (volunteer, house, cultural, office, and program), staff direction, professional networking, and office space (including equipment and supplies).
