Community and Country Information:
Cerca-la-Source is a district in the Centre Department of Haiti. It has approximately 83,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of wood floors, mud or brick walls and cement or tin roofs. The most commonly spoken language is Creole. Common health problems in this area include malaria, the flu and diarrhea. Most adults in Cerca-la-Source are unemployed but some work as animal herders, subsistence farmers or on plantations and earn the equivalent of $40 per month. This community needs employment opportunities, schools and educational materials.
Haiti occupies the western third of the island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean. A mix of mountains, valleys, lakes, seashores and rivers gives Haiti varied weather conditions. About two-thirds of the terrain is unsuitable for farming. Haiti is one of the most densely populated and poorest countries in the world. Most Haitians are subsistence farmers who cultivate small plots of land around their mud-and-thatch homes. Most speak Creole, but their official language is French. Catholicism is the major religion, but Voodoo, practiced by roughly half the population, was recognized as an official religion in 2003.
Bethel Educational Center was founded in 2014 by the No Orphan Left Behind Foundation (NOLBF). This center was created as part of NOLBF Operation Schools of Hope Haiti and in response to God’s call to care for the orphan. This center is located in Cerca-la-Source, Haiti. The mission of our Bethel Educational Center is to provide free, Christ-centered education to orphans and vulnerable children at all levels (kindergarten to High School).
