Past Projects

 

Computer-Assisted Learning in Honduras
 

CPI ventured into the field of Computer-Assisted Learning in 2009 by initiating a program for Grades 7-9 in Honduras. A school was opened with 19 students in a rented two-bedroom bungalow in the town of Santa Cruz de Yojoa. Eventually, the increasing enrollment led to a move to a permanent school built by the municipality in 2016.

The first satellite school was opened in 2010 in the remote village of Las Delicias in the mountains of Honduras. A local couple, Trinidad and Teresa Guevara, hosted up to 30 students in their home until 2013, when CPI brought in a shipping container and converted it into a classroom.

 

By the end of 2023, the program had grown to 791 students in the main school in Santa Cruz and the # satellites scattered throughout much of Honduras (see map). Over 4,000 students had completed at least one year of schooling and # had graduated from Grade 9. The impact of the program on students' lives is illustrated by a number of stories.

The program has been administered by CPI's Honduran partner agency Asociación Confraternidad Honduras (ACH) since 2013. On January 1, 2024, responsibility for the oversight and funding of the program was transferred from CPI to the Sombrilla International Development Society.

Village-Building in Honduras

 

The inability of the landless poor in Honduras to access the formal economy through production has led to much conflict and bloodshed. As a result, many people have fled their home country, most to the U.S. and some to Canada. CPI believes it has a model of peaceful land distribution that could significantly reduce the number of people fleeing violence and economic hardship.

CPI purchased land to build the village of Tapiquilares and provided mortgages to 11 landless families for construction of their homes, plots for growing food, a community centre, and cultivation of pineapples as a cash crop.

Moto-taxi Vocational Training

 

Moto-taxis are a common and affordable means of transportation in Honduras. A donation from the Flaman Foundation enabled CPI to develop a vocational education program for the maintenance and repair of moto-taxis. Staff have assembled a collection of 58 YouTube videos for students to study before they begin to tear down and then reassemble vehicles. The next step is to build a facility in which students will gain hands-on experience working with moto-taxis.

Learning Tours

 

Beginning in 2013, members of CPI's leadership team organized and led Learning Tours to Honduras to give participants a first-hand look at CPI projects and an opportunity to see various cultural, historical, and natural sites of interest. Most of the computers in use at the CPI schools were donated and collected in Canada and then brought to Honduras by Learning Tour participants.
