The Belize Family Life Association
(BFLA) was established in 1985 as an affiliate of the International Planned Parenthood Federation.
In 1995, the Belize Family Life Association
(BFLA) initiated a series of discussions with its youth groups throughout the country and with the Society for the Promotion of Education and Research (SPEAR), a local organization that had successfully worked with inner-city youth, to identify ways to effectively work with out-of-school adolescents.
The interventions by the Belize Family Life Association
and the Pakistani government were designed with an eye toward tracking results, and both projects have produced abundant, nuanced documentation indicating that individuals are absorbing new values about gender as it applies to themselves and the world around them.
