The Jacmel Children’s Center offers love, a home, education and a better future for the orphans in Jacmel, Haiti. Founded by Bonite Affriany, the “Mother Teresa” of Jacmel, the Center is a beautiful 12,000 sq. ft. two-story orphanage and school located on the southern coast of Haiti. There are 19 children currently living at our non-adoption orphanage, ranging in age from four to eleven years old.
By educating and nurturing the children of Jacmel in a safe, loving and productive environment, we celebrate the potential for these children to grow into intelligent, kind and motivated adults that will help evolve Jacmel. We focus on the physical, social, spiritual, emotional, and educational needs of the children, and create opportunities and sustainable programs for their well-being and future.
The Center is adjacent to Bonite’s primary facility that feeds hundreds of children and senior citizens daily, offers community faith services, adult education, and provides clothing, medical care and micro-lending to hundreds of others in the Community.
