"I loved living in the orphanage and really getting to know the kids. Sure, the cold showers were fresh and the food sometimes very simple, but living with the kids 24/7 was the best way to get to know them in a relatively short period of time." Jenny Connor, volunteer and physician 

"Working with CPP in Tanzania was life changing.  I don't mean to get all dramatic, but seriously - it taught me about what I'm capable of, what I've already got, and what I can give." 
Steve Oliver, volunteer & film maker

"The CPP group made such an incredible impact on the children of Good Hope.  
Thanks to them the children now have a playground that they can play on and where they can 'just be children'. In Tanzania sometimes trying to help your family survive becomes such a big part of a child's life that playing on a playground becomes such a valuable moment. CPP enabled us to give our children this valuable moment, and for this we are forever grateful." The Good Hope School & Orphanage

"Through your hard work and donations, we have build better lives for families like Reina Hernandez. They are grateful for their new house. They are thankful for the increased comfort and security; their lives have been changed dramatically.  Through your hard work and generosity, you have embodied the mission of Constru Casa in improving the lives of Guatemalan families.  Thank you very much, or Muchas gracias." Constru Casa

project healing a community 

In 2012, the tranquility and beauty of rural was devastated by an epidemic that swept through the entire country. Although Hand, Foot and Mouth disease is not uncommon, it is not generally deadly. However, in rural Cambodia—where diagnosis is difficult, where there are no medicines to combat fever or easy ways to provide fluid to the ill—it was. This complete lack of simple, primary care is the motivation for CPP’s next project: a rural medical clinic in Cambodia. Cambodia is a land of beauty, a place of warmth and acceptance, but their recent history has not been easy.

The Khmer Rouge, which took Phnom Penh in 1975, attempted to rebuild the country's agriculture on the model of the 11th century, discarded Western medicine, and destroyed temples, libraries, and anything considered Western. Estimates as to how many people were killed by the Khmer Rouge regime range from one to three million; the most commonly cited figure is two million (about one-fourth of the population). As a result of the devastating politics of the Khmer Rouge regime, there was virtually no infrastructure left. Institutions of higher education, money, and all forms of commerce industries were destroyed, so the country had to be built up from scratch. UN-sponsored elections in 1993 helped restore some semblance of normalcy. A coalition government, formed after national elections in 1998, brought renewed political stability and the surrender of remaining Khmer Rouge forces. 

Hardships are still visible everywhere in Cambodia, but Cambodians are strong people, after years of isolation, the war-ravaged nation has seen rapid progress in rebuilding.Cambodia has had one of the best economic records in Asia, with economic growth averaging 6 percent for the last 10 years. Strong textiles, agriculture, construction, garments, and tourism sectors led to foreign investments and international trade. But very little of this reaches the countryside, as the rural population continues to lacks education and productive skills, and suffers from an almost total lack of basic infrastructure. 

But, in at least one province, change is 

happening, grassroots change. Change mandated by the people, orchestrated by the people, and celebrated by the people. And Creating Partnerships for Progress will be part of that change.  First, we assisted with the building of a library to help bring books to an area without books – to help both children and adults into a world of literature, history, and science. In 2014, CPP helped with the ground breaking and foundation building of the medical clinic.  The building of the clinic will continue with local workers - but it will be a project that needs help from all quarters. Your donations will bring modern primary healthcare to a community for the first time! 


Access to basic medical care is among the most striking benefits to a family and community. By effectively addressing the most common health needs of children, primary health care can bring the greatest benefits to the health of families and communities. Severe disease can limit the ability of patients and caregivers to work. Any illness lowers worker productivity and drains household assets. By improving family health through prevention and early treatment, accessible primary care services can reduce the negative economic consequences of ill health for households, reduce absenteeism and enhance 

children’s performance at school. A medical clinic can act as a community resource (providing meeting places, for example) and to engage in community development activities, including addressing nutrition, sanitation, and hygiene. Furthermore, primary care services are more geographically, financially, and culturally accessible to local communities, providing more personalized care to the poorest people who need it most. 

A project of this size will take the combined effort of all our supporters. As we have provided play and imagination, solid homes and imagination, and 

reading and imagination in the past to communities, we too can provide healthy living and imagination, to realize a better, brighter, and happier future for a rural community in Cambodia.

the start of creating partnerships for progress

The motivation for starting 
creating partnerships for progress was to fill a hole in the lives of the children at The Good Hope Orphanage and School.  
Mama Asha Mohammed founded The Good Hope Orphanage and School in 2006, when she took in her first helpless and innocent child orphaned due to HIV/AIDS. This mission to help children developed into something bigger. In addition to providing love, food, and shelter, she saw a widespread need to educate these forgotten children, and help them help themselves out of poverty. With assistance from her son
Ally and his best friend Nelson Mbise, Mama Asha Mohammed established the orphanage and school in Ngusero Sombetini, a village 20 minutes outside of the city of Arusha, Tanzania. The community quickly became aware of her capacity to love and teach children, so they approached her to 
teach their own children. A school was founded. 
cpp's first project, PLAYGROUNDS WITH A SPARKwas planned to bring a playground to the children of The Good Hope Orphanage and School. After much 
planning, work and financial aid, the GooHope Orphanage and Schoolreceived a playground made of both locally crafted playground pieces and purchased pieces.  In addition, cpp provided labor and funds to assist in the completion of the concrete floor for the new orphanage facility.

Although started with a single purpose in mind,cpp is dedicated to 
continuing community based projects every year.
