Create a model of peacemaking and peacebuilding that will address the structural causes of conflict in Central America. Use the best practices of Habitat for Humanity, Mennonite Economic Development Associates and Mennonite Central Committee in community and economic development to assist peasant people and villages to get the resources and services they need to lead stable productive and rewarding lives. When the model is perfected, we hope others will emulate it.
About ASSOCIATION OF CANADIAN PEACEMAKERS INTERNATIONAL, CANADA
Do peacemaking, agricultural and economic development, youth and adult basic literacy, community health, gender equality, and environmental protection at the village level. For example, CPI built its first village. Land was purchased, subdivided and sold to eleven families. These families will get training needed to raise the crops needed to pay for the land and the house each family will got. The houses were built by the partner families. Payments from houses and land will be placed in a rotating fund and will be used to help more families acquire houses and land. CPI has introduced computer assisted learning to Honduras an is offering a computer based junior high school in the municipality of Santa Cruz de Yojoa.
