Plans are being made to send a shipment to Honduras for support of several ongoing CPI projects. A 40-ft. sea can will be purchased and filled with items required in village-building and Computer-Assisted Learning (CAL) projects. About one-half of the sea can will be occupied by 36 1-m3 tanks previously used by Cargill Canada in food production. After the tanks are cleaned and dried, they will be packed with up to 500 computers and peripherals. The remaining space in the sea can will be filled with tools and equipment for CPI's vocational training program for tuk-tuk maintenance and repair in Santa Cruz and other materials yet to be determined.
The tanks are to be used for storing rainwater in a village that is experiencing a water shortage due to a lengthy drought. The computer equipment is intended for use in CPI’s main school in Santa Cruz de Yojoa and various satellite schools throughout Honduras. After the sea can is emptied, it will be modified for use as the instructional facility for tuk-tuk vocational training.
