Welcome to the home of Saint Louis University's partnership with the people of St. Martin's Jesuit parish and school, located in Belize City!
SLU is blessed to work with such an amazing community of people. The children of St. Martin's school are victims of an environment of crime, drugs, and violence in the surrounding neighborhoods, and many are struggling to complete school. St. Martin's is a Jesuit parish serving the very poor of Belize City, and is a part of the Central and Southern Province of the Society of Jesus, of which Saint Louis University is also a member. Given Saint Louis University's mission of Service to Humanity, as well as its current and past partnerships with the people of Belize, we are committed to working with the people of St. Martin's and the surrounding communities in a spirit of solidarity that emanates from a faith that promotes justice.
