Becker College has established a partnership with the Be Like Brit Orphanage in Grand Goave, Haiti. In May 2012, volunteers spent time painting and working on the construction site. For our second service trip—March 9-16, 2013—volunteer students and staff from Becker will stay at the Be Like Brit Orphanage, work with the children, and provide support wherever needed.

 

On January 12, 2010, a devastating earthquake resulted in widespread destruction and loss of life in Haiti. Britney Gengel, daughter of Becker College alumnus and former trustee Len Gengel, was among those who died. Len and his family have made it their mission to honor Brit’s memory by building the Be Like Brit Orphanage, which will become home to 66 young children in January 2013.

Refreshments will be served, including: cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, tapas, desserts, and coffee/tea.

Event activities include:
• Greetings from Robert E. Johnson, Ph.D., President of Becker College
• Music by MainSouth
• Slide show and remarks by Becker College volunteers
• “A Dream Comes True” with Len and Cherylann Gengel
• Live auction
