“Students who choose a developing country are looking for something different than if they’re going to a developed one”— Rhondine Petrof
Rhondine Petrof ‘s background in tourism along her entrepreneurial spirit and knowledge of central America make her the perfect person to champion Toucan Education Programs, an education program that helps students intern, volunteer, and study in Belize.
One reason that students cite for not gaining international experience is that they’re worried about being so far away from home, but as you can see below Belize really is not that far away. The culture is completely different, but they speak English. The food is fresh, the people are vibrant, and it just makes sense to do.
Do all things with great love — Mother Teresa
