Template:Infobox organization Ilo Center for Education, Organization, and Promotion of Development (CEOPTemplate:NbspIlo) is a multifaceted social development effort begun in 1976 by the Society of Jesus in Ilo, Peru.


After the 1950s the port city of Ilo saw a surge in migrants due to the growth of Southern Peru Copper Corporation in the area, whose operations caused critical ecological problems.[1] CEOP Ilo was founded in 1976 in cooperation with the ministry of education as a Jesuit technical school, especially for the migrants drawn by the copper mining. The incentive for founding the school was the Jesuit preferential option for the poor.[2]

In the 1980s two key civil organizations, Labor and CEOP Ilo, began working with urban marginalized communities encouraging local participation in the form of popular assemblies and neighborhood committees[3] and, in concert with the municipal government, a Sustainable Development Plan (PDS).[4] Institutional reform was needed, which led to assisting labor unions, forming leaders, and protecting the environment especially from the devastation wrought by the mining industry. With the return to democracy in the 1980s the need to form leaders at all levels had become even more urgent. Also self-employment and credit unions gave more opportunities to the poor.[2]

In 1994 the need was perceived to offer more formal education so that the poor could participate as citizens in their own, integral development, especially through popular organizations.[2] Activities increased throughout the 1990s with even greater popular participation in government[5] and, by 1999, CEOP Ilo was included in innovative participatory budgeting discussions (PB)[6][7][8] as well as in discussions on infrastructure[5] and in negotiations with the copper company. By 2005, about 90% of the investment budget was subject to PB discussion.[4][9] As an early example of PB in Peru, CEOP's efforts "became a model for the New Organic Municipality Laws of Peru for the implementation of PB",[10] with noted improvement in governance and in the environment of Ilo.[11] CEOP has also been signatory to international conventions on the environment.[12]

CEOP was involved from the start of Regional Participatory Education Councils (COPARE) in Peru, which provide for citizen input into public education policy.[13] It has helped prepare civil society leaders to implement public policy for the benefit of the common people.[14] It is credited with fostering inclusive public policy to provide safe and supportive schools in the region of Moquegua.[15][16] It has also participated in the modernization of small businesses.[17][18]
