As a sponsor of a child at Be Like Brit, you are assured that all monetary contributions are going directly to helping the children of the orphanage. As a foundation, Be Like Brit values integrity and compassion. Sponsorship helps secure shelter, nutritious food, clean water, advance education, medical / dental help and a loving environment. If it wasn't for sponsors, raising the next generation of leaders in Haiti would not be possible.
Be Like Brit wants our children to be well rounded Haitian Citizens. One of those ways is by having the children attend local educational schools where they are with other local Haitian children. In addition to the traditional education, Be Like Brit has advanced educational software, such as ABC Mouse, that the children use to further their education outside the classroom. They are all learning English which will help them to compete for jobs on a Global level.
On the first floor of the Be Like Brit Orphanage there is a 1,150 square foot medical/dental clinic that serves all of our children and visiting volunteers. Medical professionals from all over come to Be Like Brit to help care for our children and our community which is desperately needed. We also utilize telemedicine and other virtual medical platforms to further the health of the children.
Be Like Brit is an ecumenical orphanage, which means we accept all faiths. Our children come from different backgrounds/different faiths and we accept them all. We believe that a solid faith foundation within the child will point them in the right direction.
Be Like Brit Foundation, Inc is based on the United Nations Rights of a Child. In addition to that, our top priority is to make sure Britney's spirit is alive at BLB. At Be Like Brit, it is forbidden to hit a child. We believe that with a strong faith foundation and a loving atmosphere, these children will grow to be the next generation of Leaders in Haiti.
