In these difficult times we ask, but what about the children?
Who is taking care of abandoned, abused children, children afflicted with HIV?
Liberty Children’s Home is a sanctuary for children in need, providing in a natural environment, love, nurturing, and a high standard of education. Situated in Ladyville, on the outskirts of Belize City, Belize, Central America. Liberty Children’s Home is unique in its commitment to child-centered care and education. The home’s
philosophy has been influenced by the Pikler method of childcare, a well-researched approach developed to prevent the damaging effects of institutionalization on children. Liberty also draws from the Reggio Emilia and Montessori methods that aim for the fullest possible development of the whole child.
“This home should be a model for other homes here in Belize and around the world.” –
Dr. Ek, Pediatrician, caring for Liberty Kids.
“You can see the difference on the faces of these children.” – Delfena Mitchell, Director.
