Belize Culture and Heritage Association (BCHA) is a non-profit organization incorporated in October of 2005 to
shed awareness about the rich culture of Belize. BCHA is organized exclusively for community, cultural, civic and
educational purposes. Though we are many representing the ethnic groups of the Creole (Kriol), the Garifuna,
the Mestizo, the Mayans and others, we are one country. BCHA represents an opportunity to educate the
Belizean community and others of this ancestry; an opportunity to shed awareness on who we are, where we
hail from, and where we can be!
ONE COUNTRY, MANY CULTURES
To Enhance the Culture and Preserve the Heritage of Belize.
OUR GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
BCHA exists to empower Belizeans and others alike and encouraging them to become knowledgeable about
our country and heritage. We intend to achieve this goal through a number of programs such as our yearly
exhibit at the Skokie Festival of Cultures, A Tea and Cultural Event, Christmas Bram, Workshops, forums and
other venues. On the Community side, BCHA has been doing its part to provide much needed assistance to
various organizations in Belize. Among those being supported are the Belize Leo Bradley Library, the Salvation
Army and the Ebenezer Church and School. Aide will be given to other organizations provided that the need is
there and items become available.
Our vision is one of social and cultural exchange among all Belizeans, Caribbean Nationals and people in
general. We hope to present a creative and ongoing vision for our youths by generating cultural affirmation and
economic and community stability. With your help we aim to promote an awareness of values of continuance of
Belizean community life and family, to represent a Belizean perspective in reconciliation programs and events.
WHO WE ARE
BCHA is ran by a group of non-paid individuals. We are a 501(c)(3) organization and donations or gifts are tax
deductible. BCHA relies on the community for both financial and practical support and we appreciate any
community support or involvement that would assist us in achieving our goals.
