the Belize Inspiration Center will give children support, care, stimulation and opportunities they need. It will provide a safe place for children to recreate and interact away from the crime and violence that permeates the Belizean society. The Center will cater to children 0-16 years, giving priority to those with special needs and disabilities to create a reverse “integration child care model.” It will also provide specific stimulation and childcare and will also train parents, helping them develop practices at home to stimulate and support their disabled child.
The wife of the Belize Prime Minister, Kim Simplis Barrow is a longtime advocate for children’s needs and is the impetus behind the Belize Inspiration Center. She also founded the Lifeline Foundation
