Be Kind Belize is a humane education outreach programme. We are now ready to take on volunteer educators. This would involve donating about 3 hours of your week during school hours.
The Be Kind Belize humane education programme is based on the concept that all life is precious and is practiced by teaching young people the value and importance of treating other living creatures with kindness.
A more complex definition of humane education is provided by the Humane Education Institute: Humane education provides accurate information about the issues of our time so that people have the information they need to understand the consequences of their decisions. It fosters curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking, so that people can evaluate information and solve problems. It instills reverence, respect, and responsibility, so that people have the motivation to face challenges and to act with integrity and it offers positive choices that benefit oneself, other people, the animals, and the Earth, so that people are empowered to create a more humane world.
