One of the organizations we visited is the Liberty Foundation which is located in the town of Ladyville on the outskirts of Belize City. Liberty was established to provide care and support education of abandoned and abused children in Belize. We learned that Liberty also assists children with disabilities and special needs, including children with HIV/AIDS.
We were able to visit their school facility which provides education to pre-school children in the local community. The Liberty Foundation's Director, Agatha Valentine, informed us that the school uses the Montessori educational approach which was originally developed for underprivileged children. There is an opportunity for Isa Mundo to provide additional supplies and technology to this school and we will be assessing how to best support the Liberty Foundation in the coming year.
