Good Day 1 Body Family!
Life experiences could be the catalyst to cause a person to make an incredible difference in the lives of others. This is exactly the case with the Founder of our partner organization, Esland Berjuste of WATCH KIDZ.
Esland states, “At the age of 12 my father took me to Haiti for the very first time and I fell in love with the country and its culture. I also couldn’t help but notice homeless kids and babies on the street. My cousins took me to go see a movie and while leaving the theatre a little boy approached me and asked me if I had any change and as I reached into my pocket a cop came by with a whip and hit the boy while screaming out “Get away from here you Dog”. It was at that very moment I knew I had to do something to help.” In 2007, during her sophomore year of college, she started WATCH (What About the Children in Haiti). Then in 2015 Esland added, What About the Children at Home when she expanded efforts to also empower youth in both South and Central Florida. Both together are known as WATCH KIDZ.

We are excited to announce on Saturday July 22, we have our first event together as we collaborate with WATCH KIDZ signature event, “Cupcakes and Conversations” which is for middle and high school young ladies. We now include, BLAST (Building Lives Around Sound Truth) for middle school and high school young men. This will be the event to attend if you are seeking an opportunity to provide your son or daughter with a chance to get their questions answered confidentially (sorry, no parents allowed) by people who serve the community and are looking to see them go to another level. This is a FREE event! Please register at the link below to reserve space for Cupcakes and Conversations or BLAST.
We are honored to have Esland as a Part of the Body!
