Volunteer to organize and help manage a local art store in Caye Caulker, Belize!

Through this program, you're invited to help plan, organize, and manage a new outdoor vending booth selling locally made jewelry, paintings, and other fine art created by Madi Collins, founder of the P.A.W. Cat Sanctuary and Humane Society.

You'll volunteer with P.A.W. Cat Sanctuary and Humane Society, a local organization that provides spaying and neutering services and promotes humane education in Belize. The sanctuary serves as a haven for abandoned, abused, and neglected cats and dogs on the island.

To help supplement the sanctuary’s income, Madi needs your assistance in creating this new storefront open to locals and to tourists worldwide.

Location

This program is located in Caye Caulker, Belize, a beautiful island just off the mainland. At six miles long by two miles wide, Cay Caulker’s community is tight-knit, yet welcoming of tourists and travelers.
