While many sponsors choose a specific child to support and receive regular updates and information from, our Child Sponsorship program supports all 66 of our children at Brit's Home equally, regardless of official sponsorship status. Rather than identifying a specific child in the child sponsorship process, many individuals prefer instead to give to our general fund. Our general fund offsets the costs associated with programming costs and supports those children who may not be sponsored or who are not fully sponsored. Instead of receiving updates from a specific child, general fund sponsors can watch the whole family grow, learn, and thrive through our social media pages!

Wisely was very quiet and shy boy when he first came to Brit’s Home, but we knew that after some time with us he would come out of his shell! He is lucky enough to be here with his little sister, Daffecat, although they had not been living together prior to their arrival here at Be Like Brit.

Wisely is a very good singer, and he won first place in the Brit’s Stars singing competition. He is also very funny and considers himself a comedian. Wisely is currently enrolled in the Be Like Brit Academy where he has been progressing in his studies. He tells us his favorite subject is Math. Wisely adores his little sister Daffecat and is always watching out for her. He tells us she is his best friend. In his free time Wisely enjoys walking around exploring Brit’s Home!
