CANELA

CANELA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Pennsylvania, USA.

Its objective is to improve societies through value-based education.

Its mission is to support existing, well proved educational projects for the formation of civic and spiritual values in Latin America and Africa.

Education in both civic and spiritual dimensions is an essential prerequisite for the success of any long-term development support. Often this support is provided before ensuring this kind of education. CANELA exists to bridge that gap which has neutralized the effectiveness of so much public and private development aid in Latin America and Africa.
