Our Mission

Transforming lives with the love of Jesus, through knowledge, clean water, and opportunities for children with disabilities

ABOUT US

We are a ministry in Belize dedicated to helping special-needs children and supporting our community.

Our Nonprofit, NGO organization is called Se Konsa which means, “That’s Right!”. The organization’s outreaches include villages in Cayo, Belize, Central America. At the hospital we pray for the sick, and give care packages to new moms who sometimes have nothing to even wrap their baby in to take them home. We teach labor and delivery techniques to expectant moms and dads at the clinic in San Ignacio and in the Mennonite community in Spanish Lookout. Many women have asked us to help be doulas for their births, so we provide support before, during and after their deliveries.

As our hearts have always been touched by special needs children, we are currently continuing to add to our dream for them- a special needs children’s camp, Camp Se Konsa! This is the first camp for special needs children and their families in Belize. It is most common for families with special needs children to stay at home because there is no place to take them or a way to get them there. We are honored to pick them up so that they can enjoy what was made special for them!

Our ministry provides families with much needed respite by providing a day – or an overnight adventure! – for the whole family to enjoy at Camp Se Konsa! The atmosphere is filled with laughter as the children play on the playground developed with their needs in mind, make crafts, and learn about the culture in and around Belize.

We also provide medical supplies, school supplies, and teach health tips for living healthier lives. It is a pleasure working with teams from around the world to provide Jesus’ love through therapy (i.e. physical, occupational, speech, mental health, etc.), optometry screenings, dental hygiene assistance and wheelchairs they can take home with them. Since 2016, we have been working with our local community and government.  We dedicate our lives to investing in the lives of these very special families.

Meet Our Kids

Ezekiel

I live in Belize with two of my siblings and parents. Belize is a small, slow-paced country where everyone knows one-another. Our house is on the top of a hill a few miles from the main road. There is not much to do when you live a couple miles away from another person, so I have gotten into the hobby of collecting cards, making art and playing games with friends or just by myself. Unfortunately, there is no way of collecting new cards here as they are not shipped into Belize. My favorite part of Belize is that everyone knows everyone, so crime rate is lower. Even though I enjoy living in Belize, I wish to go to America to college and learn computer forensics and arts and design.

Alycia

Belize is a small country with not a whole lot going on. It’s very calm and easy to keep pace with. The heat is sometimes unbearable, but it’s best to go swimming or stay indoors. I find the plants and animals here very interesting and I enjoy watching them. I go to a private school where I’m hoping to graduate soon. To pass the time, I make art or read books. I favorite drawings of animals and anime styled people. I have a DeviantArt under the name of Enderutsu with my art, I hope to illustrate comics or make art for people. My favorite food is the national dish called, Rice and Beans. If I could, I’d eat that meal every day. However, I do wish to have some American food every once in a while. When we first moved to Belize, there was only jungle and dirt roads. No sidewalks, no big open roads, and no streetlights. But now Belize has grown a lot in the past few years and it is still developing.

Levi

I enjoy going swimming because Belize is steaming hot each day and I sweat a lot. I liked having events at the camp with the people there. My favorite food is food that doesn’t smell weird. I love going to America and eating food we don’t have in Belize. We are getting more types of food in store like boxed pizza and Twix. The camp has been under construction for 6 years and my siblings and I clean the camp before and after each event. We use a Wi-Fi hotspot on a phone because we live in a remote area. Where we live is two hours away from the beach but I love going there. When we first moved to Belize in 2016 the roads were all dirt road, but now they are single asphalt roads with yellow linings in the middle.
