When to use urban CHE

Now that we have learned a lot about urban CHE, and some of us have been trained in the Training of Trainers (TOT) for Rural CHE, I am thinking about how to know when to use Urban and when to use the Rural CHE? Does Lifewind (MACA) acknowledge that sometimes it is necessary to blend the two, or are the programs usually implemented as an isolated entity?

When I was in Argentina a few weeks ago I had the chance to see a few of the programs that are slowly getting off the ground. One, in Baradero, a small town 1 hour from Buenos Aires, was definitely not an urban setting, but I wouldn’t describe it as being very rural either. If I was to pick, I would say it is more rural than urban, but the CHE facilitators were going to be using the Urban CHE for this community. I found that very interesting. Bibi any comments about why they are using Urban, and when to differentiate between the two?

On this day...

    Hi Steve, I just found this again by accident. Actually many peri-urban sites are a combination of urban and rural. We will be doing one in Corbin KY which is a town of 10,000. Also doing one in Nova Scotia Sydney Mines where the town is only 3000 with several other small towns nearby. So yes it is a hybred.
