Ecological Development through Service-Learning

Daniel Baker


This article describes a successful model used in international
service-learning projects that integrates economic
development and ecological improvement. The principles of
the model are discussed, including commitments to maintain
partnerships over time, emphasize the transfer of knowledge
from one generation of students to the next, start small, build a
history of success, and gain community trust. The application
of this model to an evolving series of service-learning projects
in Honduras is discussed. The article concludes with a discussion
of some of the challenges and management strategies
useful in implementing the model.
