Andreline was born May 25, 2005 and is originally from Grand Goave, Haiti. Andreline is a very sweet girl and we believe she has the potential for success and greatness! She is a little shy, but with 65 brothers and sisters, hopefully they will help her break out.

Dalandya was born on July 5, 2004, and is one of our brightest children here at BLB. She speaks fluent French, which is rare, and is working hard on learning English, too. Dalandya’s mother died several years ago, and she had been living with her father here in Grand Goave. Situations were such that we decided to bring her in to BLB to offer her a safe and secure place to thrive! We love having her here and she’s a wonderful addition to our family.

We first met Kervens and his sister Sandiana last year, when they were brought to us by extended family who could not care for them. Sadly, they lacked the necessary documents for us to enroll them, and we had to deny them despite the very real need.

Having lost both of their parents, these two children were especially vulnerable and in need of our assistance. Kervens started out quite withdrawn and shy, but is quickly adjusting to his new life here. We think his smile (minus a few teeth!) tells so much!

When Mackenson came to us at Be Like Brit, his aunt and grandfather had walked with him some six hours, down from the mountains far behind and above our site in Grand-Goâve. Upon seeing him, it was immediately clear that he was in need of medical attention. Having lost his father in the 2010 quake 4 months before he was born, and having lost his mother just last year, Mackenson and his extended family were desperate for help.While we normally require 24 hours to decide on each case, without hesitation we accepted Mackenson in to the program at Be Like Brit. He’s been quiet at times, yet so full of life at others. We know before long he will feel safe, secure, and comfortable in his new home.

Shnaider is from Deuxieme Plaines, Haiti; He was born December 24th, 2005. His mother was killed in the 2010 Haiti Earthquake and his father recently died in a Moto accident. Before coming to Be Like Brit Shnaider had been living with a cousin and her family, but she was not able to provide for Shnaider; even with the very basics every child should have access to.

Socrate was born May 18, 2007, and came to us while living with his elderly Grandmother who was no longer able to care for him. He’s a great little soccer player and one of our best behaved children here at Be Like Brit! When he’s not busy playing superhero, he likes to study and dance! We’re glad to have him here with us!

Sophonia is the last of 9 children. She has 3 brothers and sisters who are also with us at Be Like Brit. They first came to us last year at Be Like Brit when their then very ill mother was seeking help. Lacking the necessary paperwork, we were unable to even discuss any kind of assistance. In April of 2014, their mother returned to Be Like Brit. Her situation more dire than the year before, the mother had gone through all of the necessary channels to secure the paperwork we needed. After a home visit by Jonathan and Cherylann, it was decided that Sophonia and her family would come to us at Be Like Brit. Sophonia is a sweet, quiet, and gentle little girl. Her adjustment to BLB has been incredible and we know that is largely in part of keeping her together with her family.

Valentina is a very sweet, almost 3-year old little girl who came to us from deplorable conditions in the mountain community nearby Be Like Brit. Her family unable to provide for her, we found she was eligible for the program here at Be Like Brit. She’s since started school at a local pre-school and is doing better day by day! We can’t wait to see the benefits of this loving environment and the impact they will have on Valentina!

Wisely was born January 26, 2007 in Port au Prince. He’s here with his younger sister, Daffecat, and while he might be a bit of a wild one in the behavior department, he’s incredibly smart and we’ve given him the nickname of “Little Professor”!

While many sponsors choose a specific child to support and receive regular updates and information from, our Child Sponsorship program supports all 66 of our children at Brit's Home equally, regardless of official sponsorship status. Rather than identifying a specific child in the child sponsorship process, many individuals prefer instead to give to our general fund. Our general fund offsets the costs associated with programming costs and supports those children who may not be sponsored or who are not fully sponsored. Instead of receiving updates from a specific child, general fund sponsors can watch the whole family grow, learn, and thrive through our social media pages!
