More than 60 University of Mississippi students have taken part in service-learning projects in Belize over the past couple of years. This year, five journalism majors were part of a group of 24 students who traveled to Belize for Winter Intersession courses. They spent most of their time in San Mateo, a small community on the island of Ambergris Caye in northern Belize, where residents struggle to survive without electricity, roads, running water, decent housing and sewage systems.
UM Journalism students produced a magazine and TV series based on their Study Abroad experience, and a TV series. You can download that magazine for free here. The link to the TV series is available in the table of contents in the magazine.
