CPI to build a new village in 2013!
Thanks to a new partnership with Habitat for Humanity (in Edmonton and Honduras), CPI is building a new 12-family village in 2013, modelled on the one built in 2010.
This is a new model for Habitat for Humanity, enabling peasants to get land, a home and the income to pay for both.
Habitat for Humanity provides homes to needy families, who repay the costs through a mortgage. Since most Honduran peasants can't afford a small mortgage, CPI has added another step: an income.
CPI celebrates another 185 graduates!
On Dec. 14, 185 students received official grade completion certificates, doubling our graduates in just a year.
Thanks to our Computer-Assisted Learning (CAL) program, Canadian Peacemakers International is making a real impact in Honduran villages. In just three years since we've started the program, we've helped more than 400 junior high grade completions recognized by the Honduran government. And the program is still growing: current enrolment in 15 communities is 450 students!
With just four staff members —two teachers and two technicians – our CAL program reduces schooling costs by nearly 90 per cent, an economical model in the developing world.
