"We are proud to have Stanbridge University participate in our CESF program and know their students are making an important contribution to the community through service."
"Through the CESF program, Stanbridge students have created legacy projects in partnership with non-profit organizations focused on solutions for pressing problems facing the most underserved populations," President Yasith Weerasuriya stated.
The impact of the CESF program on the participating student fellows and on the people and organizations they serve is undeniable, and has become a signature component of the community service initiative at Stanbridge, and in turn, a greater education in humanity and healing.
Academics working with the CESF have revealed after years of research that the buffer zone is a de facto wildlife haven, sheltering mammals such as the Cyprus moufflon and countless species of flora and fauna.
This safety has come under threat in recent years according to the CESF with uncontrolled fires and illegal poaching and hunting taking place.
"The CESF calls for resources to be provided by both communities to enforce the existing ban on hunting and trapping in the buffer zone, and encourages senior negotiators in the peace talks to consider transforming the area into a Peace Park," a CESF press release said yesterday.
Based on my experience, I believe a more in-depth view of CESF system operation should have been presented.
When properly installed and operated by qualified operators, CESF systems have achieved great success.
The success of any CESF system depends on the depth of the operator's training and time spent on the job--and not just the equipment used.
