C.I.P.I.E.

When SCW was constructing schools in remote rural communities in Honduras we discovered that there were children with disabilities and they were not in school. There were no services and parents were left on their own to address their children’s circumstances. These children were the “hidden” part of Honduran society and parents were not equipped to handle their challenges. At the same time SCW did not believe that constructing a separate school for this population would best serve these children so we constructed a center to address learning disabilities. The center was designed to be one of the most prominent and beautiful buildings in the city, to clearly express the belief that all children are important. The spaces in the building were created to support a varitety of activities and include therapy rooms, conference areas, offices and small group tutorial areas. There is also a larger meeting room for teacher and parental training. The center serves about 100 children with a wide range of disabilities including hearing, sight and mental conditions.
