Special Envoy’s Wonder Woman is youth advocate and entrepreneur Saidy Godette

Posted: Wednesday, January 18, 2023. 10:50 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The Special Envoy for the development of families and children, Rossana Briceno features outstanding Belizean women making a difference in Belize every week.

Today’s feature is on activist and youth advocate, Saidy Godette.

Godette has a Bachelor’s in History and Geography and a Master’s in Education and Management from The University of the West Indies.

Saidy is the owner of The Art Shack Belize, an Art Gallery, Marketing and Design Company in Belmopan.

Saidy is currently an adjunct lecturer at Galen University and a frequent writer of marketing and business articles for TAS Belize.

In 2020 she collaborated with several artists, visual and lyrical, from across the country. This was the beginning of an art gallery in Belmopan, The Art Shack Belize.

The gallery has evolved into a home for numerous Belizean/local products. Its mission is to support and contribute to the community of artists and crafters by offering quality art pieces, and quality supplies to accommodate customer needs; hosting and supporting shows, classes and contests; and promoting Belize as an artist’s oasis and destination.

In 2022, Saidy created the Code Red Campaign, a project aimed at targeting period poverty. Together with Life Uncommon, Saidy acquired donations of sanitary supplies for young girls and women. The Code Red campaign was a huge success.

The objective and vision of the program were to ensure young women had adequate supplies of sanitary items. Periods should not be a taboo topic. Together with Life Uncommon, the girls donated to were also given a lecture on feminine hygiene. 

This campaign is one of the projects created by her company The Art Shack Belize.

Additionally to this for three years she has gathered donations of toys, every December, which she donated on Christmas eve to children in the Maya Mopan area.

This project was special for her because she believes that no child should be without a present at Christmas. The hardships brought by covid have affected the world, and families still find themselves in financial hardship. The hope of these two campaigns was the offer some relief to the youth of Belize.

Her most recent project was working as one of the curators of Let Belize Live: Speeches of the Premier, which launched at The George Price Centre for Peace and Development. This was a collaboration with The Ministry of Education, NICH-ISCR.
