Fly The Phoenix

Fly the Phoenix believes that education, as well as daily food, are basic human rights. In order to combat the imbalances of these rights, we are creating sustainable, 25-year cycle, educational community programs. These are funded by our local income-initiatives, challenges and international donations through our registered charity, Fly The Phoenix.

Phoenix secondary school update

Classrooms
Classrooms

The past three months in our secondary school in Honduras have seen great advances in the education of the almost 100 students from 9 different communities, many of whom walk two hours each way just to receive an education. Classes including local geography, art and music have been undertaken, with the results shown off in a local schools get-together.

Our work in the primary school continues well, with the children in first grade really improving their basic reading, writing and counting skills. We plan to start investing more in sustainable income plans in the next couple of months, improving upon our Plan Café and also introducing Plan Pollo (chickens).

Thankyou for all your support in the past present and hopefully the future! cheers

Daily food and fruit makes such a difference

Honduras

Our fresh fruit and food programs continue in all countries with positive differences in levels of malnutrition obvious. That said, for many kids still the food we provide is sometimes their only meal of the day. We are hoping to bring in a breakfast program in Guatemala which will provide a hot drink and bread to help the start the day off well.

This year we will also be investing in school vegetable gardens to sustain the food programs in the future; this includes crops that can be eaten as well as sold in local markets to generate funds for foodstuffs that we cannot grow, including cooking oil, sugar, oil and salt.

Many thanks for your generous donations in the past and thankyou in advance for your donations in the future.

36 local teachers now employed

Peru

Our local teachers we employ continue to provide education to almost 1000 children across Latin America. It is such a thrill taking on new teachers who used to be our own students, closing the circle! The exam results this year have been exceptional, proving once again that indigenous children react better to indigenous teachers, rather than employing teachers who so not comprehend the hardships of life these children live, having never been through this themselves.

This year and next year, we do intend to increase the number of local teachers we employ so thank you for your support in the past and thankyou in advance for your donations in the future, to help us make this all happen!
