    For the latest news across Belize, visit: http://edition.channel5belize.com/ It’s not often that News Five is invited within the compound of the Belize Central Prison, currently home to about one thousand four hundred and twenty inmates. But today we were, and it was for a good and positive reason. The female population of the facility has been gifted with a new all-purpose classroom building, courtesy of the British Government and the Word at Work Ministry. As you’ll see in this story, the value of the building lies not so much in its physical structure as in the opportunities that it will offer these women. News Five’s Mike Rudon went to prison, fortunately as a very temporary guest, and has the story.

  • [Wikipedia] Hinduism in Belize

    The origins of Hinduism in Belize date to 1857 when three thousand East Indians migrated from Jamaica to Belize. According to 2010 census, 2% of Belize population is Hindu. Hindus from British India continued to arrive in Belize during the 19th century to work as indentured labourers on sugar cane plantations.The Hindu community in Belize today consists mostly of families who arrived in the 1950s, when Belize was still a British colony. The community is composed almost entirely of Sindhis and so there are few cultural differences within it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hinduism_in_Belize

With 22,960 square kilometres (8,860 sq mi) of land and a population of only 312,698 inhabitants (2010 census),Belize possesses the lowest population density in Central America. The country's population growth rate of 3.15% (2012 est.) is the second highest in the region and one of the highest in the western hemisphere. Belize's abundance of terrestrial and marine species, and its diversity of ecosystems give it a key place within the globally significant Mesoamerican Biological Corridor. Belize has a diverse society, comprising many cultures and languages. It is the only nation in the region with a British colonial heritage, but as a part of the Western Caribbean Zone, it also shares a common heritage with the fellow Anglophone Caribbean countries. In general, Belize is considered to be a Central American nation with strong ties to both the Caribbean and Latin America. Belize is a member of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), and Sistema de la Integración Centroamericana (SICA). Belize is known for its September Celebrations, and is the birthplace of chewing gum and Punta Rock The origin of the name Belize is unclear, but the earliest record of the name is found in the journal of the Dominican priest Fray José Delgado, dating to 1677. Delgado recorded the names of three major rivers that he crossed while traveling north along the Caribbean coast: Rio Soyte, Rio Xibum, and Rio Balis. These names, which correspond to the Sittee River, Sibun River, and Belize River, were provided to Delgado by his translator.It is likely that Delgado's "Balis" was actually the Mayan word belix (or beliz), meaning "muddy-watered". Others have suggested that the name is derived from a Spanish pronunciation of the name of the Scottish buccaneer Peter Wallace, which was applied to an early settlement at the mouth of the Belize River, although there is no proof that Wallace actually settled in the area and some have characterized this claim as a myth.Several other possible etymologies have been suggested by writers and historians, including French and African origins. The Belize Barrier Reef is a series of coral reefs straddling the coast of Belize, roughly 300 meters (980 ft) offshore in the north and 40 kilometers (25 mi) in the south within the country limits. The Belize Barrier Reef is a 300 kilometers (190 mi) long section of the 900 kilometers (560 mi) long Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, which is continuous from Cancún on the northeast tip of the Yucatán Peninsula through the Riviera Maya up to Honduras making it one of the largest coral reef systems in the world after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and the New Caledonia Barrier Reef. It is Belize's top tourist destination, popular for scuba diving and snorkeling and attracting almost half of its 260,000 visitors, and is vital to its fishing industry. Charles Darwin described it as "the most remarkable reef in the West Indies" in 1842.

Honduras’ homicide rate of 90.4 per 100,000 people is the world's highest. This makes Honduras technically the most dangerous country in the world. The capital, Tegucigalpa, is the country’s largest city, so it's no surprise its also the countries second most dangerous city only behind San Pedro Sula. With 102.2 murders per 100,000 people it is extremely dangerous. In 2011, 1,175 killing took place, many gang related. 4) Belize City. The one-time British colony of Belize has one of the highest murder rates in the world with 105.1 murders out of 100,000 people. The majority of the homicides take place in the former capital of Belize City where gang violence is rampant, especially on the south side. The majority of crimes are burglaries and thefts, often without injuries. In 2014, however, there were a disturbing number of robberies that ended in serious injuries and fatalities. Corruption, human smuggling/trafficking, the drug trade, money laundering, and organized gang activity remain significant problems. Criminal organizations and individuals often operate beyond the ability of the police. Making it very difficult to tackle the cities crime problem. 3) Guatemala City. Guatemala is still battling the legacy of a civil war which raged from 1960 to 1996. With a national average of 99.5 murders a week in 2012, it's certainly one of the most dangerous countries. Guatemala City has a murder rate of 116.6 out of 100,000 people which local officials are struggling to control. Local officials are described as “often inexperienced, underpaid and unable to cope”. Many of the common crimes are assault, theft, armed robbery, carjacking, rape, sexual assault, kidnapping, and murder. 2) Caracas. Worst hit are the poor barrios where police dare not enter, gangs rule and murders are routine. The government refuses to release its own statistics, but its estimated 24,000 people were murdered in 2013. With a murder rate of 122 out of 100,000 people, this gang rules city is a no go zone for anyone not from the area. Since a lot is not known officially on what goes on, its difficult to pin point the exact problems, however gangs are certainly one of the main issues. 1) Basseterre. The tiny Caribbean nation of Saint Kitts and Nevis has a high proportion of murders relative to its small population. The total of 17 murders in the capital Basseterre in 2011, doesn't sound that bad but when you consider it has a population of only about 15,000, that brings its murder rate to 131.6 out of 100,000 people. Although the country has a lot of tourism, most of its crime is related to drugs & rarely effects tourists.

East Indians in Belize comprise four percent (7,000 persons) of the population. Understandably, they have lost almost all of their traditional Indian culture. Interestingly, Indians in Belize are longing to rediscover and re-claim their Indian history, heritage and culture. They are looking towards Trinidad for inspiration, interaction, support and sustenance. Formally known as British Honduras, Belize is the only English-speaking country in Central America. Bordered by Mexico in the North and Guatemala in the West and South, it lies at the heart of the Caribbean Basin. Belize has giant Mayan pyramids and the world’s second largest barrier reef. It has a mélange of over ten different cultures which are concentrated in the six districts. Unlike any other Caribbean country, Belize experienced three waves of Indian migration, commencing in 1858. The first wave of migrants consisted of 1000 deported ex-soldiers (and their families) who had rebelled against the British Government in India’s First War of Independence/Sepoy Rebellion. The second wave of Indians, ex-indentured workers from Jamaica, went to Belize in 1872. The third wave of Indian migrants to Belize came from Guatemala, from where they had gone to work in the coffee plantations in Cafe Mountains. Unique to Indian history in the Caribbean is the fact that early immigrant labourers worked in Belize in the sugarcane, as well as lumber and banana plantations. As early as the 1860s, they worked under the employment of American ex-confederates. With the passage of time, the mainly-Hindu immigrants have all converted to Christianity, resulting in the absence of temples and lack of festivals in the country. The only remnants of Hindu culture are the special preparation of food with turmeric [curry] and the observance of Hosay/Muharram [Who-se-me-say].
