Welcome

In His Footprints is a Christ-centered ministry serving in Armenia, Belize.  It is officially registered as a nonprofit organization in Canada and Belize.  In July 2017, IHF celebrated its tenth anniversary.

Facing high levels of unemployment and unaffordable post-elementary education costs, most Belizean youth are hopelessly entrapped in systemic, generational poverty.

Through Christ-like mentorship, IHF restores hope by empowering them through:

  • Trade Skills Training: (carpentry, welding, hair-cutting, baking, small engines, etc)
  • High School Sponsorship Programs

IHF is also engaged in community outreach programs involving local youth and international volunteers.

They include:

  • hospice care for the poor, sick and elderly
  • environmental stewardship: community cleanup projects
  • teaching/tutoring at village pre/grade school
  • orphanage support
  • hosting youth retreats
  • hosting hygiene and nutrition clinics

To ensure donor accountability, Canadian operational costs are minimized by being a volunteer-driven, online, micro-ministry. Belize is similar with the exception of the modest wages of our ministry leader.

To foster self-sustainability in Belize, IHF:

  1. is governed by a Belize board comprised of Christian educators, community leaders and businessmen.
  2. creates entrepreneurial opportunities by producing marketable products through its job skills programs.
  3. holds local fundraising events in support of additional youth being enrolled in job skills and high school programs
  4. cultivates its acreage in eco-sensitive ways growing healthy, nutritional food
