Women and youth empowerment initiatives launched in Corozal

The Ministry of Investment, through its Investment Policy and Compliance Unit (IPCU), in collaboration with Corozal Think Tank, launched two new initiatives at Corozal ITVET: the “Training Camp for Belizean Women and Girls” and the “Mobile Phone Repair Course for Women and Youth.”

The Animation Bootcamp for Belizean Women and Girls aims to equip women in Corozal, Orange Walk and Belize Districts with basic digital skills in graphics and animation, enabling them to create short, animated films. These skills are increasingly in demand across a variety of industries, including film, television, gaming, advertising and marketing.

The “Cell Phone Repair Course for Women and Youth” addresses the need for skilled technicians in the maintenance and repair of cell phones. Currently, there is no training course of this type in Belize, and access to cell phone repair services is limited in many parts of the country.
