Welcome to the home of CESERSE – Center of Social and Educational Services – a Christian center created to provide services to the most vulnerable sectors of the Cuban population – children living in foster care institutions or with serious health conditions, and senior citizens living in homes for the elderly.
Located in Varadero, Cuba, CESERSE also provides lodgings and logistics for customized holidays and tours with a variety of focuses, whether they be religious exchanges, health vacations, business retreats, educational tours or cultural or political exchanges, etc.
In CESERSE, groups of children and seniors enjoy up to a week of educational, cultural and recreational activities, free of charge. Located on a quiet street in a beautiful, old house directly across from the beach, the centre creates a respite from daily institutional life and a chance to enjoy the beautiful, natural environment of this Caribbean peninsula. The activities and care provided by CESERSE contribute towards nourishing the physical, psychological and spiritual needs of this highly disadvantaged sector of the population.
Sponsored by the “Dora E. Valentin” Presbyterian Reformed Church in Varadero, and the Christian Conference for Peace for Latin America and the Caribbean, CESERSE plays an influential role within the local community through its social service programs, emphasizing healthy living and the protection of the environment.
This beautiful home is also available to international groups. Whether desired for relaxation, educational activities, business retreats or cultural exploration, CESERSE will provide room and board, transportation and logistical arrangements for a wide range of special interest groups. This service not only helps to provide the center with financial stability, but also creates and strengthens relations with the international community, both ecclesiastic and secular.
