Current Project - Ambergris Caye, Belize

Hope Haven Belize - Women's and Children's Shelter needs your help.

Who is Hope Haven Belize?

Hope Haven Belize is a women's and children's shelter located in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize. San Pedro Town on Ambergris Caye in Belize has no orphanage available to the at risk children. The island is host to nearly 25,000 residents, foster care services are desperately needed. This project, Hope Haven, will be the first children's shelter on the island, and we are currently raising funds for completion of the first phase of this project, which is the renovation and construction of the building that was generously donated by San Pedro Lions Club.

43% of Belize’s population lives in poverty. Our people are struggling to make ends meet. Most families are one emergency away from losing their homes or falling into major debt.

Why does Hope Haven need your help?

Hope Haven is working as fast as our funds allow us to, but building a shelter for the country comes at a cost. We are building and operating on donations which will go towards the launch of Hope Haven, the island's first children's shelter. So now is the time to step up. If you've been thinking about donating money, materials, or time, please reach out to us.

Let's help prevent senseless deaths and crime against innocent children in Belize. They are happening all over the island and these children have no where to go for refuge and shelter. They need our help, time is of the essence, and Hope Haven needs you now.

What is Let's Imagine doing to help?

Knowing the power of yoga, our environment, and creative expression, Co-Director of Let's Imagine, Shannon Reilly, has been communicating with Hope Haven Belize's volunteer team to organize yoga classes and art classes at the shelter by local San Pedro yoga teachers and artists.

Shannon has been communicating with Michelle Williams, Founder of the wellness school Om Shanti Belize and a Chairmember of the nonprofit Rhythm Of Change (ROC) Belize dedicated to promoting and implementing activities that bring forth individual, social and environmental changes in Belize to collaborate on yoga classes for those at Hope Haven.

So far, Shannon donated 4 yoga mats, 2 yoga DVDs, over 400 assorted color markers and paper for the residents at Hope Haven Belize. With the help of our supporters, we can donate more yoga mats, art supplies, and other tools to promote the unique expression of the individuals finding refuge at Hope Haven during their transition.
