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.

End of the school year - back in September!

As the school year draws to a close in Ecuador we can reflect on huge advances in the education, thanks to our four Phoenix-paid for local teachers in the three communities in which we work. By employing them and also paying for their transport to and from the communities each day we are ensuring the best possible education we can provide for the kids in the remote hamlets in which we work.

During the school break we will be investing in vegetable gardens and chicken coups with the aim to sustainably continue with our daily food and fruit program from September whilst also providing a little extra for the local families. As the new term starts, we aim to continue with our local teachers and hopefully add a couple more to help out in the schools.

Many thanks for your generous support and together we can provide the best possible education for the kids in Ecuador.

Ensuring pre-school in Nicaragua

Creativity on the floor

During the past three months and for the rest of the year we will be concentrating on maximising our education with our pre-school, providing the materials necesary for our teachers to teach and impart knowledge to the best of their abilities. Pre-school is so important and lessons learned now puts the children in good stead in their forthcoming years of education.

We celebrated Day of the Child recently, with piñatas, food and dances which were enjoyed by the children and their parents alike. To move towards more sustainability of the projects we will be investing in plans to create income not just for the school though also members of the community to improve their standard of living aswell as sustainable income for the school.

Many thanks for your excellent support and please do keep it coming, together we can improve the future for Nicaragua and its children!

Sustainable income plans also help the elderly members of the family

As we move into the second half of the year we can look back at some advances in the first six months, including planting over 25,000 which will help all our families, including the elderly, by creating windbreaks around their crops to avoid damage in the coming harvests and also ensuring a plentiful supply of firewood in the future.

We are also investing in many sustainable income generating plans, which include milking cows and chickens, the proceeds of which are split evenly with the family and the school. This means that the elderly will have their share of eggs and milk daily, especially important with food supplies currently dwindling.

Many thanks for your support and please dig deep to help us reach our goal of creating sustainable help for the elderly in the future.
