Building Partnerships for Global Justice
CoDevelopment Canada is a B.C.-based NGO that works for social change and global education in the Americas. Founded in 1985 by a group of activists who wanted to go beyond financial aid, CoDev builds partnerships between like-minded organizations in Canada and Latin America to foster learning, social change, and community empowerment. These partnerships educate Canadians about Latin America and allow them to directly support the region. Such connections build solidarity, mutual understanding and ultimately improve prospects for a fairer global order.
CoDev has been working with the BC Teachers’ Federation since we began in 1985. Larry Kuehn, former President and now Director of Research and Technology is a long-time international solidarity activist. In this Teacher magazine interview, Larry talks about why he got involved (a CoDev organized tour in 1985!) and the impact of the BCTF solidarity work.
