International development

International development

is a concept that lacks a universally accepted definition, but it is most used in a holistic and multi-disciplinary context of human development - the development of livelihood and greater quality of life for humans. The CENTRE FOR EXCELLENCE IN INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT is an international development agency used to design and deliver community-based programs encompassing foreign aid, governance, health care, education, gender equality, disaster preparedness, infrastructure, economics, human rights, environment, and other issues associated with these.

CENTRE FOR EXCELLENCE IN INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

September 1st, 2011 was an important day in the Village of Prako, a community just north of the capital city of Accra in Ghana, West Africa.

The Village Chief and Council assisted a Canadian delegation to officially break ground for the establishment of brand new sanitation facility within the next few months.  The new facility will provide about 10 to 12 public toilets for both men and women.

At the present time, Prako does not have any reliable water supply and/or public sewer systems.  Currently, the Coca Cola Africa Foundation, in collaboration with WaterHealth, is establishing a reliable water supply to the homes in the village. The new sanitation project, spearheaded by Brampton Christian Fellowship in Brampton, Ontario, will provide needed relief until a full sewer system can be developed in the distant future.

Initially, the Centre for Excellence in International Development will play a minor role assisting with the initial development of the project and will be actively involved in assisting to seek additional funding for the project, if needed.

Dr. Randy Neilson from Brampton, and Dr. John Fryters from Prince Albert, both members of the Board of Directors of CEID, were present at the groundbreaking and the official ceremonies in Prako.

Anyone wanting to assist CEID with this new and exciting international development project should call Centre for Excellence in International Development (CEID) at 306-922-0100.
