With an office in Edmonton, Alta., Dave Hubert, who founded Canadian Peacemakers International (CPI) in 1997 following a 23-year career in post-secondary education (including eight years as college president) and 10 years with Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), is working with several partners in addressing poverty issues in Third World countries, particularly in Central America. In addition to John and Sylvia Leonard, CPI also partners with Canadian International Development Agency—which matches every dollar donated to CPI with three dollars from its Canadian Partnership Branch—and Kindness in Action, a group of dentists who donate their time to help Hondurans with dental needs. Other major donors are the Frank and Agnes DeFehr Foundation, the Monsignor Irwin International Development Fund, Paul Precht Energy Economics Ltd. and MCC.
