Building a better community, like the hospitality industry, requires collaboration as well as a passion for people and service.

Baha Mar is working to build a better community through BELIEVE, the Baha Mar Foundation.

BELIEVE was founded on three pillars community, culture and conservation and with the help of volunteers from Baha Mar, the foundation takes on service projects to support initiatives in these categories.

BELIEVE is part of an ongoing community service initiative at the Seahorse Institute, a non-profit center that provides treatment for children with autism and other developmental delays.

The institute experienced a devastating fire earlier this year and has recently relocated to a new building that required extensive renovations.

To date, 20 BELIEVE volunteers have worked diligently to improve the surroundings at the Seahorse Institute by undertaking hands-on tasks such as cleaning and painting as well as assembling classroom furniture and playground equipment.

The construction team at Baha Mar provided manpower for the extensive work on the premises while the general contractor of Baha Mar, China State Construction Engineering Corporation, donated building materials such as concrete blocks for the Institute’s building expansion.

“Through BELIEVE, we are fostering a culture of volunteerism and community service at Baha Mar. There were volunteers from throughout the company,” commented Robert Sands, senior vice president of administration and external affairs.

“Great communities are built only when we all work together for a common good.”

BELIEVE has also engaged members of the corporate community to assist with the overall renovations and furnishings of the Seahorse Institute as well as other community service initiatives.
