It takes a village to raise a child.

On June 01, 2013 in Belize, Caye Caulker


With heartfelt pride and solidarity, we highlight the social initiatives and large strides Belizean NGO, Special Envoy has implemented and continues to implement with its mission of “advancing the welfare and well-being of Belizean Children.”  Today the  Belizean community joins together in raising funds towards the Inspiration Center, a facility benefitting disadvantaged and differently abled children in need of physical, speech, occupational, or mental therapy, rehabilitation, as well as education.  With children comprising nearly 50% of the Belizean population, it becomes imperative to ensure that children have access and mobility towards a quality of life.  Special Envoy encourages all sectors of society to pitch in and indeed, it takes a village to raise a child.

Today, the second annual telethon will take place with donation booths set up in different communities throughout the country.  Here on Caye Caulker, the donation booth will be located at Jan’s Place on Front Street.  Last year, the telethon raised $500,000 USD which went to constructing the building.  This year, the telethon hopes to target another $500,000 USD to cover costs of the facility’s equipment.  We are inspired by the action and effort that carries the hope of our children in need, and we are blessed to experience the community spirit that embodies the Belizean community.
